Ganesh Chaturthi 2017: Mumbaikars share their Ganpati pictures

FOLLOW US:

The people of Mumbai yesterday welcomed Lord Ganesh with the deity’s idols — from small to grand and decked up in vibrant colours — installed in thousands of households and various pandals in the city.

Ganesh Chaturthi marks the 125th celebration of the festival after freedom fighter Lokmanya Bal Gangadhar Tilak called upon the people in 1892 to turn the private, household festival into a gala event. The festivities began with ‘Ganesh sthapna’ (installation of the idol) followed by prayers.

On the occasion, we asked Mumbaikars to share with us their home Ganpati pictures. Take a look.
