Place where Shiva beheaded Ganesha

Long long ago ,Parvati made an idol from the dirt of her body and blessed it with life."What should i do mother?" said the young one. "Guard the place and don't let anybody enter while i go for bath,"replied the mother. The little innocent one unknowingly stopped Shiva from entering the area.Both unaware of each other's identity got into a fight during which the head of the younger one was cut off.Soon realizing from Parvati what he had done,Shiva placed the head of the elephant on the body and brought him back to life.This was the god Ganesha.And this is believed to be the place where the incident occurred.
