What is Ganesh Chaturthi & Ganesh Festival?

The festival of Ganesh Chaturthi marks a day on which Lord Ganesha makes his presence on earth for all his devotees. The festival lasts for up to 10 days (depending on the place where it is celebrated), ending on Ananta Chaturdashi.

During the festivals, a household worships an idol of Shri Ganesha, and there are public celebrations of the festival.

Ganesh Chaturthi is one of the most popular festivals of the Hindus. This festival is observed in the month of Bhaadrapada according to the Hindu calendar and usually falls any day between 20th August and 15th September. The festival is marked with preparation of mouth watering delicacies and exchange of Ganesh gifts.
