was celebrated across on Thursday with people offering prayers to idols of the elephant-headed Hindu god.

People also thronged Vijayaka/temples where special prayers were conducted.

The aroma of 'kozhakattai', a rice flour and jaggery dumpling, wafted through many of the kitchen windows. After offering prayers on the occasion, neighbours and friends got together to share the sweet treat.

Roadside vendors did brisk business even on Thursday morning, selling Vinayaka idols, flowers and holy arugam grass.

Public celebrations were also held in most parts of the state capital with huge Ganesh idols placed inside decorative marquees.
