Ganesha is a male god and he is very popular to the Hindu religion. He has a head of an elephant and a large belly. The body of Ganesha is a regular human body. Ganesha is the son of Shiva and Parvati. Ganesha is known as the god of intellect and the remover of obstacles. The story of how Ganesha got the elephant head was because of his father Shiva had cut his head off and his mother Parvati had to get another head for her son or he will die. So Parvati went out and cut off a head of an elephant and put it on Ganesha. Then he had to stay with the head of an elephant. Ganesha's vehicle is a mouse.
