Lord Ganesha image is found throughout India, Sri Lanka, Thailand and Nepal. Hindu sects worship him regardless of affiliations.
Devotion to Ganesha is widely diffused and extends to Jains and Buddhists.
Although Lord Ganesha is known by many attributes, Ganesha’s elephant head makes him easy to identify. Ganesha is widely revered as the remover of obstacles, the patron of arts and sciences and the deva of intellect and wisdom.
