As per the tradition Lord Ganpati popularly known as Palace Ganpati arrived in the morning as per shubh muhurat from the workshop at Khanderao Char Rasta. With Bhajans, sound of Shehnai and chants of Ganpati Bappa Morya the lord arrived in a ‘Palkhi’ inside the Rajmahal to bless the royal family and the visiting people.
