Ganesh Chaturthi that marks the birth of Lord Ganesha, is being celebrated by Hindus across the world on Friday, August 25.

While it is an 11 day long festival, the major highlight of the Ganesh Festival is the first day when people welcome the deity at their homes or pandals and the last day or visarjan when the idol is immersed in river.
