Image of Ganesh

at Muktinath
In spite of the fact the elephant faced God is usually worshipped first before any other worship service is carried out to any other deity, only a small minority of the Hindu pilgrims visit the Ganesh shrine before their visit to the Vishnu/Chenrezig Temple. Most pilgrims seems not to know there is a small Ganesh shrine
next to the Shiva Parvati Mandir.

Remover of obstacles
In Hindu mythology, Lord Ganesh is the son of Lord Shiva and the Divine Mother Parvati. He is the brother of Kartikeya; Lakshmi and Saraswati. Gana means 'all existing beings in names and forms,' and isha means 'Lord.'
Ganesh removes all obstacles and ensures success in human endeavors. He is an archetype of Wisdom and Beneficence.
