The procession of the five Manache Ganpati idols reached its culmination as the Kesari Wada Mandal idol was immersed at Panchaleshwar Ghat at 6:58 PM, marking the end of the revered procession. Earlier in the day, Guruji Talim Ganpati Mandal had immersed their idol at 5:40 PM, and Tulshibag Ganpati Mandal followed suit at 6:32 PM, all at Panchaleshwar Ghat, as per information provided by the Pune Police.
Shri Kasba Ganpati Mandal Trust was 1st to idol immersion
Among the five Manache Ganpati, Tambdi Jogeshwari Ganesh Mandal had completed their idol immersion at 5:10 PM. This year, the order of immersion followed Shri Kasba Ganpati Mandal Trust, which was the first among the five Manache Ganpati idols to complete their immersion.
Traditionally, the grand immersion procession of the Dagdusheth Halwai Ganpati took place at night. However, this year marked a significant change in timing, as the procession commenced after 4 PM. This adjustment was made to ensure a more timely conclusion to the procession, addressing recent delays that had inconvenienced devotees eagerly awaiting darshan of the revered deity.
