The pañcāyatanapūjā is a worship of five gods, normally Śiva, Viṣṇu, Sūrya, Gaṇeśa, and Devī. In some cases Gaṇeśa would be replaced by Kārttikeya or Brahmā. The most common form of worship is with five specific stones, each representing one of the deities. But also small figurines and engraved yantras can be seen. The stones, figurines, or yantras are placed on a tray for domestic worship with one god in the centre.
