Ganesh Chaturthi, also known as Vinayaka Chaturthi is a Hindu festival celebrating the annual arrival of the Hindu God Ganesha (Ganesh) to earth from his celestial abode. The festival is marked with the installation of Ganesha’s clay murtis privately in homes and publicly on elaborated pandals. Ganesh, the youngest son of lord Shiva and Parvati is “Pratham Pujya” in Hindu mythology and is worshipped first among all gods.
