Ganesha Jayanti or the birthday of Sri Ganesha during Magha month is mainly observed in Maharashtra, some parts of Karnataka and Goa and coastal regions of Konkan whereas Ganesha Chaturthi observed during Bhadrapada month is known as the birth anniversary of Lord Ganesha in most parts of India.

Ganesha Chaturthi is one the most famous celebrated festivals in Maharashtra, however it is not observed as the birth anniversary of Lord Ganesha in the whole of India. Ganesha Jayanti during Magha month is considered as the birth anniversary of Lord Ganesha in Maharashtra.

People fast on the day of Ganesha Jayanti and offer prayers to the God of wisdom. The Ganesha Jayanti festival (Magha shukla Chaturthi) is celebrated in small number of places, where clay images of Ganesha are worshipped and immersed in the sea or river after 11 or 21 days. In the month of Magh, the devotees go on a pilgrimage to one of the many Ganesha temples across India. There are eight places in Maharashtra which are sacred to Ganesha, known as Ashtavinaykas (Ashta means eight and Vinayaka is one of the many names of Ganesha) and the pilgrimage is known as Ashtavinayaka yatra. These are at Morgaon, Theur, Lenyadri, Ozar, Ranjangaon, Siddhatek, Pali and Mahad. Palkhi yatra is celebrated in Morgaon Ganesha Temple (Mayureshwar temple/Shri Moreshwar Mandir) in Pune on the day of Ganesh Jayanti.
