About Shree Siddhivinayak Temple

This Mandir is located in the heart of the city and is also believed to be one of the most sacred temples in Mumbai. Devotees from around the world come here to seek blessings of Lord Ganeshan and it is also believed that no one's prayers go unanswered if prayed truly to Ganapati Bappa, who also happens to be the most loved and favourite god of Mumbaikars who celebrates Ganesh Chaturthi in full swing with all their heart and soul. The history of this temple goes like this everyone knew that there is only one temple but today we are able to see that the very small temple, which was originally small is now very well built up as Siddhivinayak Temple which has  Idol of Lord Ganesha and trusts me it's very beautiful. It’s interesting to know that in past there was a lake inside the eastern part of the temple to complete the desire of water but now it’s filled. The Idol of God Ganesh has four hands holding up a lotus, small axe, holy beads, and favourite modak in respective hands. Modak happens to be his favourite. The door of the temple is made up of wood with a carved image of ashtavinayak(problem removal lord). You will basically find all sorts devotees here from VVIPs. to Film star, cricketers, celebrities, politicians  who come here on a regular basis to seek the blessings of Lord Ganesha
