Ganesh Idol in Pooja RoomDid you know that you should always keep Ganesh idols at your entrance in pair? Did you also know you should avoid Ganesh idols with trunk to the right side?

There are many such things you need to know before keeping Ganesh idols in your home. If you don’t follow these traditions and customs, you may be inviting bad luck to your home.

But, if you follow these rules and customs, Lord Ganesha will bless you with all the goodness in the world. So here are those rules, traditions and customs that you need to follow while keeping vinayak at your home.

Things You Need to Follow before Keeping Ganesh idols at Your Home

You can keep Ganesh idols in your home in many ways.  One popular way is to place an idol of Lord Ganesha just opposite to the main entrance of your home.  It is believed that this Drishti Ganesha will ward off all the evil from entering your home and bring prosperity. When you place Lord Ganesha this way, he will be the guardian of your home.

However, when you place Lord Ganesha idol at the entrance, you should always keep it in pair. One facing the entrance and another one facing the other way. Why?  Because keeping a Ganesha idol with its backside facing any other room of your house is said to bring poverty.  Therefore, to compensate that, you keep another idol facing the opposite direction.

Looking to buy a new ganesh idol for your home? You can now do that at Amazon.in. They have an amazing selection of beautiful ganesha idols for home and puja room.

 

You can also keep idols in your showcases.  In that case, it is necessary that you leave at least 1 inch between idols.

Another thing to note is how you keep certain things near the Ganesha idols.  For instance, keeping anything made of leather around the Ganesha idol is not recommended.  Leather, after all, is made from parts of a dead animal.  So keep anything made of leather including your leather belts, shoes or bags away from the idol.

Apart from this, when you buy a Ganesha idol for your home, there is one important thing you need to remember avoid Ganesha idols with trunk to the right side

A Ganesha idol with trunk to the right needs special attention and special poojas.  You won’t be able to meet these needs at home and that’s why these Ganesha idols are only found in temples. That said, you could safely keep Ganesha idols with trunks to left, straight or in the air at your home.

Material Types of Ganesh idols and the Directions to Keep Them 

Gift Ganesh IdolsAccording vastu, Ganesh idols made of different materials needs to be treated differently.  The most important thing is the direction in which you should and should not place these Ganesh idols.

Silver Ganesha – A silver Ganesh idol is supposed to bring fame and publicity for you.  If you have any silver Ganesh idol in your collection, place it in the Southeast, West or Northwest direction. According to vastu, never place these silver idols in South or Southwest direction.

Copper Ganesha- Installing copper Ganesh idol in home is believed to be good for those who desire descendants.  Keep these copper Ganesh idols in East or South direction. Never keep these idols in Southwest and Northwest directions.

Wood Ganesha- Wooden Ganesh idols, including those made of sandalwood, has many benefits. We worship these idols for good health, long life and success.  So keep the wooden Ganesh idol in the North, northeast or east directions. Do not keep these idols in the southeast direction.

Clay Ganesha- Clay Ganesh idol also has multiple benefits. Worshiping these clay idols ensures you success, good health and helps you in removing obstacles. However, never keep these clay idols in the west or north direction. You are supposed to keep them at southwest direction.

Brass Ganesha- Ganesh idols made of brass brings prosperity and joy to your house.  These brass Ganesh idols are supposed to be placed at east, south or west directions. At the same time, never keep these idols in northeast or northwest directions.

How to Keep Ganesh Idols for Ganesh Chathurthi

Ganesh IdolsTen days before the day of Ganesh Chathurthi, people install Ganesh idols in specially made structures and start the pooja. On the first day, the priest installs the Ganesh idol in the temporary structure, called ‘Pandal’. The priest performs special poojas to fill the idol with life. This is called ‘Avahana’. The ritual is accompanied by chanting of sacred mantras and bhajans.

Once the ‘Aavahana’ is complete, you can perform aarti and light diyas around the idol. During the prayers, offer 21 blades of Dhruva grass, 21 modakas, 21 red flowers, and a red tilak using sandalwood.  The number 21 represents five organs of perception, five organs of action, five pranas, five elements, and the mind.  Keep a coconut and a small bowl of grains alongside the idol.  During the whole process, it is auspicious to recite ‘Ashtothara’ of Lord Ganesh.

For the next 10 days, special poojas are done on this Ganesh idol.  On the 11th day, the idols are immersed in a river or sea.  Singers, dancers, and large number of people accompany the farewell procession of Lord Ganesh idol. The immersion of Ganesh idol symbolizes the journey of Lord Ganesh to Kailash, taking away all the misfortunes of the devotees with him.

So what do you think about having Ganesha idols at home?  Do you have one in your home? Do you follow all the customs and traditions in worshiping Lord Ganesha? Share your views with us in the comments.

  1. Hello,

    We have a brass idol that we got for Ganesh Chaturthi. Can we use the same brass idol after visarjan, for daily puja?

  2. I bought lakshmi ji and ganesh ji idol for diwali puja. I had done diwali pooja also. But the trunk is on right side of ganesh ji. Now shall i continue with the same idol or shall i bought new idol. Please help

  3. Can I use a plastic ganesh idol for puja

  4. Hi Kareshma,

    There are two thoughts on this.

    1)Plastic are impure
    2)You don’t need an idol to worship

    According to first thought, use of plastic idol is evil because we don’t know how these plastic are processed.

    General consensuses is that most of the plastic are recycled and therefore are impure. Do you want to keep something impure in puja room?

    The second concept is that whatever you feel is right, is good for you. There are many swamis who doesn’t even worship idols..for them the god is everywhere and could see him in everything they see. They say, you don’t have to pray before an idol to become a devotee.

    So, I guess it’s your choice. If you think it’s impure, replace your idol with a metal or wooden one. Otherwise, be happy the way you worship. 🙂

    I hope that helps.

  5. I hv brass/ asht dhaatu Ganesh idol appr. 1 ft big….i want to keep lord Ganesh at my enterance passage facing south and towrds my enterace door. Is it good place or do i find another place please recommend.

  6. Hi Bharti,

    South direction is not recommended for any idol. This is because south is the direction of Yama…it’s always forbidden.

  8. Hi i have a right sided trunk ganpati kept in my showcase.. Is there anything i need to take care of apart from things like leather and other idols?

    • Hi Bhargi,

      You don’t need to worry about these if you are only using this ganapati idol as home decor. They don’t have any consciousness. They are there merely to decorate your home. So, don’t worry about it. 🙂

  9. Sir,

So as per your statement “However, when you place Lord Ganesha idol at the entrance, you should always keep it in pair. One facing the entrance and another one facing the other way. Why? Because keeping a Ganesha idol with its backside facing any other room of your house is said to bring poverty. Therefore, to compensate that, you keep another idol facing the opposite direction.”

    • Hi Rekha,

      If you read comments about right trunked ganesh idols on our site, you will see that many people are experiencing bad luck after keeping photos and statues of right sided statues. So, I advice you not to keep right sided murti in your home.

  17. My husband got right sund Ganapati from Bang-cock few years back and I immediately kept it in my temple and also did regular prayers with prasad flowers and dakshina but when I heard I am not supposed to do that many a times I took it down and kept on the table.

    We have bad luck for several years but it seems to have grown more. I lost my job after bringing this Ganesha but I did not associate it with this Idol

    for past few days I have started thinking that should I give it in temple or do proper prayers?

    • Hi Mridula,

      I suggest you to donate this idol to a temple. In modern busy world, its getting quite difficult to offer proper prayers daily at home. Therefore, to make sure poojas are done properly, donate this idol to a temple.

  18. Hi

  21. Hello Shyam,
    We have 2 shadu Ganesh idols and 1 silver idol.
    2 shadu Ganesh idol reasons :
    1. One we keep every year and one which one is of last year, we immersed it after 10 days.
    This year as my cousin bro wife is pregnant so we kept both at home and not immersed last year idol also. We have one silver idol also and two Ganesh bappa photos one from inside main door and one from outside main door.
    My question is whether to keep 3 idols and 2 photos is good? If yes, whether can three idols be kept side by side?
    We are not getting peace in home and financial position is also not very good. I stay with my mom only. Plz give suggestion.
    Thanks in advance.
    Mithun

  23. Hello Shyam,

    • Hi Kunal,

      You could keep a Ganesh idol on your wall where Ganesha is facing north. It fine as your Ganesh will be facing north side and not South side. It will rectify any negative effects on your house caused by your neighbour’s Ganesha.

  65. Hello Shyam,

    I recently bough goddess Lakshmi idol especially for the Varalakshmi puja. I have been thinking to put it in my puja mandir only during the Varalakshmi puja and place it in my showcase for the rest of the year. Is this advisable? If yes, Can I put it up in the Southeast corner of my living room?

    Thanks In Advance!

  66. Hi Krishnaveni,

    If you are worshipping lakshmi, I would suggest you to keep in your puja mandir (If this is the only Lakshmi idol in your mandir), otherwise, keep it outside in your showcase.

    North East Corner is preferred, if it’s not available, you can keep in South East Corner.

  67. Can you explain or show evidence to support where in religious scriptures it is written that Ganesha idols should be placed in pairs? Don’t reply with BS just prove your statements are true and not marketing hype.

  68. I have Ganesh painting which is done by myself. It’s trunk I cannot find out right or not. It seems to be on air but on right hand side. This Ganesh having snake on its stomach. Can I keep that painting in my house & where can I keep this. If it is possible to send that painting I will send but I don’t know how to send you.
    Awaiting your reply.

  69. I want to place a Ganesha Idol on my House Door facing East (when we come out of house we walk in east direction where we have passage & stairs going down).
    We also own an adjacent flat which also opens again on east (blank wall) but this door is used seldomly.

    Let me know what idols can be placed in either doors.

    Also if Ganesha is placed on Main Door then is Back facing Ganesha Idol also to be placed along with it. What is advisable can we put a Ganesha Idol on other side of Wall?

  70. Hi does the photos & Idols has different procedures, how if the photo of Siddhi Vinayak is kept inside the pooja stand with grilled doors on it?

  71. Hi
    I kept ganesh ji idol at my home entrance but someone has stolen tat. It was facing north. Is it a gud sign or bad?

    • Hi Arpita,

      Don’t worry! It’s not a bad sign.

      Imagine you bought a new dress and when you try it at home you found mud on it. Would you say, that’s a bad omen? No right? Similarly, someone stealing your stuff does not mean it’s a bad sign.

      Buy a new one and this time make sure you do not keep it somewhere people can steal.

      Okay?

  72. Hi
