Ganesh Chaturthi is a major Hindu festival celebrated across India, especially in Maharashtra, with great devotion and zeal. It marks the birthday of Lord Ganesha, the god of knowledge, wealth, and new beginnings. Lord Ganesha is the son of Lord Shiva and Goddess Parvati.
During this festival, giant Ganesha idols are made and beautiful pandals are decorated for a period of 10 days. Devotees offer prayers, sing hymns, perform rituals like aarti, and offer various sweets and dishes to Lord Ganesha. Modak, a sweet dumpling, is a favorite offering for Lord Ganesha.
On the last day of the festival, known as Anant Chaturdashi, the idols are taken out in colorful and musical processions and immersed in water. In Maharashtra, the Lalbaugcha Raja is a well-known and highly visited Ganesh idol in Mumbai.
