She asked Lord Ganesha to guard her washroom door while she went in to take a bath. Lord Shiva returned home and got into a rift with his son as they did not know each other. Ganesh had restricted Lord Shiva to go inside which angered him and he chopped Ganesha’s head. Goddess Parvathi was enraged by this act. In an attempt to cool Goddess Parvathi, Lord Shiva fixed an elephant’s head on the body of Ganesha. After this incident, Ganesha was also known as Gajanan.
