Long serpentine queues were seen in front of the temple at Waluj.

Other temples in and around the city were also decorated with lights. Bhajan and Kirtan along with other religious programmes, have also been organised.

People observed a whole-day fast on this day. Dindis (processions of warkari) have been organised at various parts of the city, including Cidco, Hudco, Mukundwadi, and Chiklathana localities.
