Mumbai is known for its grand Ganesh Chaturthi celebrations. However, COVID-19 has played a spoilsport this time and left us no choice other than reminiscing the Ganesh Chaturthi at Mumbai before the pandemic!
- LALBAUGCHA RAJA
Lalbaugcha Raja is one of the most popular Ganesha idols in Mumbai which is attracting over 1.5 million devotees every year since 1934 including celebrities across various industries. Standing tall at the height of 18-20 feet, Lalbaugcha Raja is hailed as the king who grants wishes!
- MUMBAICHA RAJA
Ganesh Gully’s famous Mumbaicha Raja is considered to be one of the most iconic Ganesha Mandal in Mumbai, which was established in the year 1927. The 22 feet life-size idol of Mumbaicha Raja is considered to be the heartbeat of Mumbai’s Ganeshotsav and enjoys the attendance of devotees in huge numbers every year.
- RAJA TEJUKAYACHA
Ganesh Chaturthi at Mumbai is incomplete without Raja Tejukayacha, which sits with pride in Lalbaug’s Tejukaya mansion since 1965. The best thing about this 19 feet tall Ganesha is that it has gone completely eco-friendly since 2019 to become the tallest eco-friendly idol made from paper!
- CHINCHPOKLICHA CHINTAMANI
About 25 people formed the Chinchpokli Sarvajanik Utsav Mandal back in 1920, and ever since then, Chinchpoklicha Chintamani is gracing his devotees from a nook under the Chinchpokli flyover. This 23 feet tall Ganesha sitting on the throne with utmost elegance is a pure visual treat for the devotees during Ganesh Chaturthi every year.
I hope you liked this virtual tour of Mumbai’s Ganesh Chaturthi. Hope Lord Ganesha bless everyone with good health and end the rough patch world is going through at the moment so we get to celebrate his arrival without any barriers next year!
