Ganesh Chaturthi is one of the most important and biggest annual festivals dedicated to Lord Ganesh in the country. This year, the celebrations for the 10-day festival will begin from September 10. The festival of Ganesh Chaturthi is celebrated as the birth of Lord Ganesh, the god of wisdom and prosperity.

Shubh Muhurat:

Ganesh Chaturthi is marked on the fourth day of the Bhadrapada month in the Hindu calendar, which falls in August-September.

Chaturthi Tithi Begins: 12:18 AM on September 10, 2021

Chaturthi Tithi Ends: 09:57 PM on September 10, 2021

Madhyahna Ganesh Puja Muhurat - 11:21 AM to 01:49 PM (Ganesh Puja is performed during Madhyahna as it is believed that Lord Ganesh was born during Madhyahna Kala.)

Time to avoid (Moon sighting) - 09:23 AM to 09:21 PM (It is believed that one should not sight the moon on Ganesh Chaturthi.)

Significance:

People bring an idol of Lord Ganesh to their home and worship it during the festival. On Ganesh Chaturthi, Lord Ganesh is worshipped as the god of wisdom, prosperity and good fortune. When the festival is over, the idol is immersed in a water body with a lot of fanfare. The immersion signals the return of Lord Ganesh to his abode after staying with his devotees for 10 days.

Anant Chaturdashi and Ganesh Visarjan:

The farewell day for the Lord Ganesh is known as ‘Anant Chaturdashi’ or 'Ganesh Visarjan'. Ganeshotsav is celebrated with full enthusiasm throughout India. But the saddest part of the festival is the Ganesh Visarjan (immersion) – the time to bid goodbye to our beloved Bappa. The festival is concluded with a huge procession followed by drum beats, devotional songs, dance, and joy by immersing the idols in the local water bodies like rivers, seas, etc.
