Mumbai, Sept 4: On the eve of Ganesh Chaturthi on Tuesday, Ganesh Visarjan will take place at various places in Mumbai. Devotees in larger numbers will visit beaches to immerse Ganesh idols on Ganesh Chaturthi. The practice of immersing Ganesh idols in water is known as Ganesh Visarjan. More than 150,000 statues are immersed each year in Mumbai. Since people come in large numbers on roads, expect traffic disruption in different parts of Mumbai.
