Vinayaka Chaturthi is the great Vinayagar festival and also the birthday of Lord Vinayagar or Pillaiyar. Vinayaka Chaturthi also known as "Ganesh Chaturthi" in Maharashtra and North Indian States. Vinayakar chaturthi festival is observed in the Tamil Month "Avanai-Valarpirai Chathurthi” or (4th day after new moon in Aavani) is special day for Elephant headed Lord Shri Vinayaka. The elephant headed vinayagar son of Shiva and Parvati, is widely worshipped as the supreme god of wisdom, prosperity and good fortune. Lord Vinayaka is the Prime God for everything. We always pray to Lord Vinayaka before starting any auspicious events / pooja. We always offer Appam, Aval, Pori, Modhagam and lots of fruits for Lord Ganesha. 





Vinayaka Chaturthi Festival celebrate with clay Idol of Lord Vinayagar. Those Vinayagar Idol installed in home and street corners and performed pooja. For pooja we may require a small flower garland made of villva leaves and arugam pullu,we can also use erukampoo garland if available.
