Siddhivinayak Mandir, Mumbai

About Siddhivinayak Mandir

This is one of the most popular shrines and definitely the most famous temple in Mumbai enjoying a mammoth 25,000 visitors a day. The deity worshipped here is probably the most favorite god among Hindus, Lord Ganesha. The literal translation Siddhivinayak is wish granting Ganesha (Vinayak) and the number of visitors, which includes politicians and movies stars, is a proof how apt the name is.

The temple when built in 1801, by a contractor named Laxman Vithu and funded by Deubai Patil, was just 3.6 m x 3.6 m. But now the popularity of the temple has extended the temple site to 2550 sq. meters. The idol of lord Ganesha is two-and-a-half feet tall, with four hands. The temple has ten feet wide octagonal ‘Gabhara’ in which the deity resides.

With donations of a year to be around 100 to 150 million, this is the wealthiest temple in the whole of the state.
