Motichoor Modak

Motichoor Modak


Motichoor Modak


Ganesh Chaturthi  is one of the very popular  festivals celebrated in India with a great devotion specially in the Maharashtra. This day is celebrated as the birthday of Lord Ganesh,the younger son of Lord Shiva & Goddess Parvati. 

Devotees offer various sweets and savouries to the deity because Lord Ganesha loves 
sweets. Lord Ganapati is very fond of modaks. Modak is believed to be Ganesha's favourite
food. He is also known as "Modakapriya", someone who likes modak.
