Mangaluru: The curtains came down on the Mangaluru Dasara celebrations here on Monday, October 26 without the customary procession on account of the COVID-19 pandemic.

Visarjana Puja was performed at 6.30 pm. Thereafter, the idols of Lord Ganapathi, nine forms of Goddess Durga, and that of Goddess Sharada were brought out of the hall one by one from 8.30 pm onward.

The idols were then taken around the temple and immersed in the temple pond one by one. By midnight, the idol of Goddess Sharada, which was the last to be taken out, was taken in a procession till the main gate of the temple before it was taken around the temple.
