In devotion to Lord Ganesha


On Monday, Hindu brethren celebrated the birth anniversary of the Lord of wisdom, Ganesh Jayanti at Shree Mahaganpati Temple, Amona.

Also known as Maagha Shukla Chaturthi, Ganesh Jayanti is a popular festival observed across Goa and Maharashtra. Ganesh Jayanti is held during the Shukla paksha Chaturthi day (fourth day of the bright fortnight or the waxing moon) in the month of Maagha corresponding to the Gregorian calendar month of January/February.
