Every year, Hindus celebrate Ganesh Chaturthi, mainly in Maharashtra and Karnataka.

Ganesh Chaturthi is celebrated as the birth anniversary of Lord Shiv’s son Ganesh.

Lord Ganesh is also considered as “Vighna Harta” i.e. one who removes all the obstacles.

Lord Ganesh is "Pratham Pujya" in Hindu mythology, which means he is venerated beyond all others.

Every year, during the months of August and September, Ganesh Chaturthi is celebrated

Ganesh Chaturthi was instituted in the 19th century in response to a call from "Bal Gangadhar Tilak" and used as a tool in the fight for liberation.

After the end of the festival, people immerse the statue in ponds, rivers, seas or other water bodies.
