The timings of the daily ritual for Tuesday has been kept as 3:00 pm which is much before the usual time.

 

As per Hindu beliefs, no religious ritual can be performed and temples remain closed for a specified period of time before, during and after an eclipse. Considering the same, the organisers of Ganga Aarti have decided to perform the ritual in the afternoon instead of the evening.
