When Lord Vishnu performed a Ganesh Puja

Lord Vishnu grew agitated. He could not find his conch - Valampuri. Then he heard someone blowing Valampuri on Mount Kailash. Lord Vishnu prayed to Lord Shiva and asked him to get Bal Ganesha to return the conch.  Lord Shiva advised Vishnu to perform a Ganesh puja. Lord Vishnu agreed. The merciful Lord Ganesha returned the conch.  The form of Lord Ganesha that returned the Valampuri is known as the Valampuri Ganesh who is depicted with his trunk facing right instead of the customary left.
