Jyeṣṭhagaṇeśa (ज्येष्ठगणेश) is short for Jyeṣṭha (elder one), one of the fifty-six vināyakas according to the Kāśīkhaṇḍa from the Skanda-purāṇa (4 2.57). Worshipping this vināyaka (gaṇeśa) is part of a sacred pilgrimage (yātrā) route which centers around Kāśī (Vārāṇasī): a holy city in India. His esoteric position within the Kāśīmaṇḍala and the geographic position of his actual shrine is given by Rana Singh in his Banaras (p. 189) (source).

Jyeṣṭha and the other vināyakas (gaṇeśas) are described in the Skandapurāṇa (the largest of the eighteen mahāpurāṇas), which narrates the details and legends surrounding numerous holy pilgrimages (tīrtha-māhātmya) throughout India. It is composed of over 81,000 metrical verses with the core text dating from the before the 4th-century CE.
