Ganesh Chaturthi , also known as Vinayaka Chaturthi (Vināyaka Caturthī), is a Hindu festival that commemorates the birth of Ganesha.
The festival is marked with the installation of Ganesha's clay idols (both in homes and publicly on pandals). Observances include chanting of Vedic hymns and Hindu texts, such as prayers and vrata (fasting). Offerings and prasada from the daily prayers, that are distributed from the pandal to the community, include sweets like modaka or laddus. The festival ends on the tenth day after start, when the idol is carried in a public procession with music and group chanting, then immersed in a nearby body of water such as a river or sea, called visarjan on the day of Anant Chaturdashi. Thereafter the clay idol dissolves and Ganesha is believed to return to his celestial abode
