Later this month, Sun 28 Aug, is the Hindu festival of Ganesha, celebrating the birthday of the god of wisdom, prosperity and good fortune. A colourful parade will take place through the streets of the 18th arrondissement, with music, dancing and a bright chariot carrying a sculpture of the elephant-headed god and led by barefooted faithfuls along a route first purified with roses and saffron. The parade begins at the Temple Sri Manicka Vinayakar Alayam, 17 rue Pajol, at 11am. Find the detailed itinerary here.
