  2. Prepare Ganesh mandap or pandal with coconut or banana leaves, mango leaves and with flower garlands to install Ganesha idol. It is always recommended to buy or prepare eco-friendly or clay Ganesh idol. Adorn Ganesh idol with flower garlands and chandan (sandalwood) paste.
  3. A Kalash or the pot filled with sanctified water and rice to be installed before invoking Lord Ganesha idol. The rice or water filled Kalash is also called Purna Kumbha. Kalasha Sthapana is performed before invoking Ganesh.

  7. Offer special recipes – modak, undralla payasam, kudumulu and the recipes made of several leaves and fruits. Offer coconut and light diya or deepam and incense sticks (agarbattis).
  8. Generally during Ganesh puja on Ganesh Chavithi, devotees place books, pens and other education or office material at Ganesh idol or Ganpati pandal and take them after Ganesh idol os moved. Usually, at homes, Ganesh idol is moved on the day after Ganesh Chaturthi.
  9. The above puja procedure is followed for several days till Ganesh nimajjan. But some people perform simple Ganesh puja on the rest of the days during Ganesh Navaratri celebrations.
