Hindus around the country marked an end to a week's celebration of Lord Ganesha's birthday and danced and marched to the seas to complete the final rites of the important festival.

The 10 days of birthday celebration known as Ganesh Chaturthi or Ganesh Utsav was held at various temples in the country.

In Suva, the Samabula Shiv temple held their celebrations with devotees converging there every night for prayers. Following the 10 days of prayers, devotees walked to the sea side today with statue of Lord Ganesha and immersed it in the sea.

The immersing of the statue in the sea symbolises the removal of all obstacles and misfortunes that may befall devotees.

Lord Ganesha is considered by Hindus as the symbol of good fortune and the remover of all obstacles from their lives.
