Gowri Habba is a significant Hindu festival that is celebrated one day prior to Ganesh Chaturthi. The festival is mainly celebrated in the south Indian states such as Karnataka, Andhra Pradesh and Tamil Nadu. In north India, the festival is known as Hartalika.
This year Gowri Habba is being celebrated on 24 August, 2017 as Ganesh Chaturthi will be starting from 25 August, 2017. Goddess Gowri, also known as Goddess Parvati, who is the consort of Lord Shiva is worshipped as the mother of Lord Ganesha in this festival. In some cases, Gauri Habba is also referred to as the Gauri Ganesha.
