The traffic police has advised residents to plan their journeys well in advance and leave for their destinations before time as delay in possible. "People should try and board metros and take public transport instead to avoid congestion," the traffic advisory said, adding that commuters are requested to follow the directions given by traffic police deployed on roads.

Many Mandir Samitis are set to take out processions (rath yatra, tableaus, decorated tempos and other vehicles) in various areas. Police said that no parking will be available on routes of procession.

Further, no vehicles will be allowed on Mandir Marg — to and fro Talkatora Stadium towards Mandir Marg, upto Peshwa Road-Mandir Marg T-point. Similarly, no vehicle will be allowed on Mandir Lane — from Shankar Road to Mandir Marg.

The prominent temples in Delhi where Janmashtami is set to be celebrated are Laxmi Narayan Temple, ISKCON temple in Amar Colony, Janmashtami Park in Punjabi Bagh, Gufawala Mandir in Preet Vihar, Adhya Katyayani Shaktipeeth Mandir in Chhatarpur and Santoshi Mata Mandir in Hari Nagar.

Meanwhile, residents said that the route near Noida ISKCON temple has already been blocked with pandals being set up for celebrations.
