Ganpati Visarjan Security in Mumbai

Immersion of Lord Ganesh idols will take place on different days of the festival starting from the second day (Wednesday, September 20). Security has been tightened at important immersion points, including those in Juhu Chowpatty, Shivaji Park Chowpatty, Khar Danda, Versova and other popular beachfronts. Immersion Day will have a larger presence of police on the ground.

The BMC has set up artificial ponds for the immersion of idols, mostly for those kept in homes by devotees.

Mumbai: Tide Times Today

As some households in Mumbai gear for Ganpati visarjan, on Wednesday, September 20, the BMC has issued high/low tide information for the city.

The high tide will be at 2.28 pm while the low tide will be at 8.29 pm.

People are in for a visual treat this year, as the city's Ganpati mandals have come up with fascinating thematic decorations for their pandals.
