The Shubh Muhurat of Durga Visarjan commences from the morning or noon time (Aparahna Kaal) on Vijaya Dashami Tithi. Therefore, when this Tithi is in progress during the morning or noon time, then Durga Visarjan is considered to be auspicious. Normally, the immersion is performed in the morning at certain places but if the Shravan Nakshatra and Dashmi Tithi Aparahna Kaal fall at the same time, then this time is considered to be the best for immersion of Maa Durga’s idol. Most of the devotees of Maa Durga end their fast after nine days and after the immersion of idol.

Durga Visarjan should not be Performed on Navami

Only a few people know that the immersion of Maa Durga’s idol should not be performed on the day of Navami. All the nine days of Navratri are dedicated to the veneration of all incarnations of Maa Durga. Maa Siddhidatri, the last incarnation of Maa Durga, is worshipped on the last day of Navratri i.e. the ninth day. But some people immerse the idol of Maa Durga on this very day. In this pretext, the worship performed during nine days stands incomplete because immersion of the idol has already taken place before Maa Siddhidatri showers her blessings. As per scriptures, the immersion of Maa Durga’s idol should be performed on the tenth day of Navratri i.e. the day of Dussehra.
