The Southern Ganesha

Ganesha Chaturthi is called as Vinayaka Chaturthi  in Kannada / Vinayagar or Pillayar Chaturthi in Tamil / Vinayaka Chavithi in Telugu.

Gouri Ganesha Festival
In south this festival is celebrated as Gouri Ganesha Habba/festival. Gowri Habba or festival is celebrated a day before Ganesh Chaturthi. She is the most powerful of all the Goddess and is the very incarnation of Aadhi Shakthi Mahamaya.

Swarna Gowri Vratha
On this day, Hindu women and young girls are in new/grand traditional attire. They make arishinadagauri (a symbolic idol of Gowri made of turmeric) and bestow her for Puja. These days ready-made beautifully painted and decorated clay idols of Goddess Gowri can be bought along with Ganesha statues, at the local market.
