Hindus celebrate Ganesh Chaturthi, also known as Vinayaka Chaturthi or Vinayaka Chavithi, as a festival dedicated to Lord Ganesha, the elephant-headed deity. This festival typically falls in the Hindu month of Bhadrapada, which usually corresponds to August or September in the Gregorian calendar. Ganesh Chaturthi is one of the most widely celebrated festivals in India, especially in the western states like Maharashtra and Gujarat.
