The festival of Vinayaka Chaturthi or Ganesh Chaturthi was celebrated across Tamil Nadu Friday with people thronging temples and making 'kozhakattai', a sweet said to be a favourite of the elephant-headed Hindu god.


Devotees offered prayers at temples dedicated to Lord Ganesha. And many houses wore a festive look as several people held special prayers at home too.

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 'kozhakattais'.

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

Different sizes of Vinayaka idols made of clay were sold at prices ranging from Rs.50-800.
