Ganesha has head of a elephant since lord shiva cut of his head in anger whenganesha didn’t allow lord shiva to meet Parvathi matha while she went for a bath and asked lord ganesha to be on a look up.

After which Lord shiva sent his servamnts to bring the head of a creature who has kept his head on the vada thisai(North side). The servants returned saying there was only a elephant was sleeping in the north side so they bought elephants face which was attached to ganesha head.Then Lord Shiva blessed him that even he is a elephant headed he will be the first god who will be worshipped first on any occasions before any other god. This is how lord ganesha got a elephant head and he became the first and foremost god to be worshipped before any other gods.
