Ganesh Chaturthi Celebration

26 August 2020

The festival of Ganesh Chaturthi was celebrated on the Fort with great enthusiasm but with due precautions and careful social distancing. The custom of Ganesh Sthapna was observed on Saturday, 22 August 2020, amidst the customary puja, bhajans and chanting of shlokas. The Assembly Hall reverberated with positivity. As customary, the next day, on Sunday, 23 August, the idol was taken to Dhobi Taal for visarjan, where it was immersed in water with hearts full of gratitude for a fulfilling year and prayers on the lips inviting Ganpati, the God of good fortune to bless the community with his presence.
