Ganesh Chaturthi Festival History and Significance:

According to Hindu mythology, Lord Ganesha was born on Chaturthi tithi of Shukla paksha in the Hindu month of Bhadrapada. As per history, the existence of Lord Ganesha happened through the sandalwood paste prepared by Maa Parvati while taking a bath. Ganesha was created in the absence of Lord Shiva. One day, Lord Shiva came to meet Goddess Parvati, Ganesha was guarding his mother and prohibited Lord Shiva from entering the place where Maa Parvati was taking a bath. Lord Shiva and Bal Ganesha fought with each other and aggressive Shiva separated Ganesha's head from his body. When Maa Parvati arrived, she was so angry and said she would destroy the universe. To handle the situation, Lord Shiva took the head of the baby elephant and attached it to baby Ganesha's head.
