Ganpati Sthapana 2022 Puja Muhrata
Since Lord Ganesh is thought to have been born at Madhyahna Kala, Ganesh Puja is preferred during this time. According to the Hindu day division, Madhyahna Kala is equivalent to noon.
According to Hindu timekeeping, the period of time from dawn to sunset is divided into five equally long segments. Pratahkala, Sangava, Madhyahna, Aparahna, and Sayankal are the names of these five parts.
On Ganesha Chaturthi, Ganapati Sthapana and Ganapati Puja are performed during the Madhyahna period of the day, which is regarded by Vedic astrology as the most suitable time for Ganesha Puja.
During midday, Ganesha devotees perform detailed ritualistic Ganesha Puja, known as Shodashopachara Ganapati Puja.
