You would have presumably recognised this custom of placing lord Ganesh statues before, and now you know why!

So, if you hold a cabinet or a combination of idols settled close to one another. It’s most beneficial if there is a gap of at least an inch between all idols. Confined placement is said to disgrace the capabilities of the idols.

Hopefully, when you buy a brass Ganesha Idol online or at a shop, you will associate the dos & Don’ts that arrive with it.
