This elephant headed Hindu god is known as the lord of wisdom and is worshipped all across India. He is one of the most popular Hindu deities and has a huge number of followers.


Lord Ganesha was born as a son to Shiva andParvati.“Ganesh”means Lord of all ganas and comes from two words, “Gana” which means group and “Ish” meaning God. Parvati, while bathing,shaped a child out of the turmeric that fell down from her body,instilled life in it and named him “Siddharth”.Siddharth, obeying her mother’s order,stood at the gate to guard her against intruders while she bathed.He did not allow Lord Shiva to enter Parvati’s cabin and Shiva beheaded him out of anger. Later on he replaced his head with the head of an elephant on Parvati’s request. Siddhartha was given the name “Ganesh” later on. He married two goddesses,Riddhi and Siddhi, and had two sons namely Shubh and Laabh.
