First of all, let me wish all my steemit friends a very Happy Ganesh Chathurthi. The festival of Ganesh Chathurthi is celebrated all over in India in very high spirits. Not only just India, it is celebrated in many parts of the world with a lot . I have always been in love with this festival as I am a devotee of Lord Ganesha.
The festival is believed to date back to the times when the Chalukya, Satavahana and Rashtrakuta dynasties ruled between 271 BC and 1190 AD.
The first historical record of it is available from the 1600s in Pune, when the founder of the Maratha Empire Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj celebrated Ganesh Chaturthi as Lord Ganesha was considered to be their Kuladevata . These are some facts how the Ganesh pooja start in India.
