Ganesh Chaturthi Countdown – Time Until Ganesh Chaturthi

Ganesh Chaturthi Countdown

Ganesh Chaturthi will be celebrated on Sat, 7 Sept, 2024.


Ganesh Chaturthi is a Hindu festival celebrating the birth of Lord Ganesha, the elephant-headed god of wisdom, prosperity and good fortune. It usually falls during the Hindu month of Bhadrapada, which generally corresponds to August or September in the Gregorian calendar. The festival is marked with great enthusiasm and devotion, especially in the Indian states of Maharashtra, Gujarat, Karnataka and Andhra Pradesh.

During Ganesh Chaturthi, elaborate preparations are made to welcome Lord Ganesha into homes and communities. Clay idols of Ganesha are made by skilled artisans, and devotees decorate their homes and public pandals (temporary structures) with these idols. The festival usually lasts for 10 days, during which rituals, prayers and cultural events are held.

On the last day, the idols are carried in colorful processions through the streets, accompanied by music, dancing and singing. The procession culminates with the immersion of the idols in bodies of water, symbolizing the departure of Lord Ganesha and his return to Mount Kailash, his heavenly abode.

Ganesh Chaturthi is not only a religious occasion but also a time for social gatherings, feasting and community bonding. It promotes unity, harmony and the spirit of solidarity between people of different origins and faiths.
