Ganesha is also known by 108 different names and he is considered as the God of beginnings. So Ganesh Chaturthi is celebrated on the honour of his Birthday.

There are two different stories of the birth of God Ganesha. One was that the Goddess Parvati created Ganesha out of her dirt while bathing and set him to guard her door as God Shiva has gone out. Shiva when returned to home, Ganesha didn’t know him and stop him from entering. An angry Shiva severed the head of Ganesha after a battle between two. In meantime, Parvati finishes her bath and enraged, after knowing about whole exploit. Shiva promised to Goddess Parvati that Ganesha will live again.

Devas went in search of head who is facing towards North from her Mother, and came with the result of an Elephant’s Head. Lord Shiva fixed the head of elephant on Ganesha and made him to live again. So by this God Ganesha has two birth on the difference of hours or days.

It is also believe that Lord Ganesha, ascends down to Earth to kill enemies.!
