1) Shree SiddhiVinayak Ganpati Temple
In order to take in the essence of the city, one needs to witness what locals do and indulge in it. The best place to do so is the great Siddhivinayak Temple. And if you're doing so, it's best to board the local train to catch the pulse of the city. The temple was originally built in 1801 by Laxman Vithu and Deubai Patil. One of the wealthiest temples in the world in terms of donations, Siddhivinayak attracts massive crowds everyday that often include celebrities and other important personalities.12 Midnight
These 3 can be visited together. Its a must visit temple’s in Mumbai. As we all know that Ganesh Chaturthi Festival is the largest festival of Maharashtra, so one can imagine how crowded it will be. In Siddhivinayak you are not allowed to take camera inside. Outside the temple locker is there just deposit here at a fee of 10 RS. At Mahalakshmi Temple also same restriction. Haji Ali is situated on Arabian Sea, so you have to walk for almost 2-3 minutes. But when it is high tide the water flows over the passage so sometimes it becomes difficult to go to the dargah. Entry fee: NIL Recommended length of Visit: 3-4 hrs(Queue will be there at Siddhivinayak) How to Reach: For Siddhivinayak= Take taxi from Dadar Station( Rs30 to 40) For Haji Ali= Taxi from Siddhivinayak via Prabhadevi ( Rs 80 to 100) For Mahalakshmi Temple= Walking from Haji Ali (5 to 10 mins) Tips: Start from Dadar around 11am and try to complete all three by 3pm. So from there you can go to Bandstand.
