As per mythological stories Gajaraj Airavat was one of the 14 valuable items that were obtained from the churning of the sea. Gajraj was given to God Indra. It is worshipped along with Goddess Mahalaxmi for getting her quick blessings. Eight directions are under the control of elephant Airawat only. Elephant and horses are worshipped in royal families on the day of Dussehra. The elephant is worshipped in all Hindu families in the form of Lord Ganesha for overcoming obstacles and getting success. Darshana of elephant brings good luck. Airawat Gajraj is spotlessly white and silver is one of the favourite metals of Laxmi therefore this silver elephant must be placed especially in the houses of those people in whose horoscope Rahu is placed in 2nd, 5th or 8th house.
