In Maharashtra, it is the major festival where Lord Ganesha is welcomed by the devotees with open arms to their abodes. Chants of Bappa Morya can be heard at every nook and corner of the city, and devotees offer prayers to the Lord of new beginnings.
This year Ganesh Chaturthi was celebrated on September 13.
Also known as Vinayak Chaturthi—the day marks the birth of Lord Ganesha and is a 10-day long festivity. Ganpati Utsav is the major festival celebrated in Maharashtra, Madhya Pradesh, Gujarat, Goa and Eastern parts of Odisha.
Megastar Amitabh Bachchan too visited Lalbaugcha Raja recently and shared his pictures.
The freshness in the breeze and the picture-perfect weather strikes a perfect balance between mind, body, and soul. In order to please the Ganpati, and make him visit your abode year-on-year, special puja is performed on Ganesh Chaturthi at home.
Ganpati Bappa Morya!
