TOMORROW devotees will celebrate Ganesha Chathurthi as they pray to Lord Ganesha to remove impurities from their lives and bless them with wisdom and knowledge. Ganesha Chathurthi is a festival celebrated over 10 days and it commemorates the elephant-headed god, Ganesha’s birthday.

Lord Ganesha or Ganapathi- ji is the god of new beginnings and wisdom. He is the youngest son of Lord Shiva and goddess Parvathi.

Ganesha was created by Lord Shiva and goddess Parvathi as the obstacle-creator in the path of evil.

Ganesha is symbolic of loyalty, bravery and courage. All his devotees come out on this auspicious day to seek his blessings and give thanks to him.

Reggie Chetty from the Maha Vishnu temple in Mbango said everyone is welcome to attend the celebrations at the temple.

Celebrations start at 6.30pm where a Hawan will be performed.

Modak ladoos will also offered to Ganesha.
