The ten-day-long Ganesh Utsav has begun from today and Mumbai has all decked up to welcome its favorite Lord Ganesha.
This year, Mumbai will be having about 6,300 sarvajanik Ganesh pandals, more than the 1.2 lakh home Ganesh idols and also about 9,000 Gauri idols.
For this festival the Mumbai Police is on their toes, in order to ensure that the city remains safe and peaceful during these ten days.
The Mumbai Police will use the drone cameras at five of the most crowded immersion points of this city.
Moreover, traffic restrictions will also be in place to avoid the further inconvenience to devotees flocking the city for Ganpati’s Darshan and also to ensure that visarjan routes remain clear.
While Mumbai’s most popular ‘Lalbaugcha Raja’ has been placed on his throne in the shape of a huge owl, ‘Mumbaicha Raja’ also sits inside the replica of Badrinath temple while a replica of Kunkeshwar temple will be the humble abode of ‘Andherica Raja’ for the next ten days.
