The festival concludes with the immersion of the worshiped idol in water, known as “Ganesh Visarjan.”

The Ganesh Chaturthi Festival and Visasarchan Ganesh ceremony can be observed in various durations, such as a single-day offering and idol immersion, a one and a half-day worship and immersion, a three-day offering and immersion, a five-day offering and immersion, or a seven-day offering and immersion.

It is important to note that for those who worship an idol of clay specifically for the Ganesh Chaturthi ceremony, this idol should not be brought back to the regular place of worship after the festival. Instead, it is considered auspicious to immerse the idol, symbolizing the return of Lord Ganesha’s power.
