Significance of  Sankatahara Chaturthi: 

     Each lunar month in Hindu calendar has two Chaturthi Tithis. The one after Purnima or full moon during Krishna Paksha is known as Sankatahara or Sankashti  Chaturthi.  After Amavasya or new moon during Shukla Paksha is known as Sukla (Vinayaka) Chaturthi. On Bhadrapada Sukla Chaturthi we will celebrate  VINAYAKA CHAVITHI.  

     If Sankatahara Chaturthi falls on Tuesday it is called Angarki Chaturthi and it is considered highly auspicious.

     Sankata means deliverance during troubled times. Lord Ganesha, the supreme lord of intelligence, symbolizes the remover of all obstacles. Hence it is believed that one can get rid of all obstacles by praying and observing fast.
