Day 1

As Mumbai is very busy metropolitan city ,but it gets free to welcome Lord Ganesha every year .
This city glows more with lights and flowers  in Ganesha festival rather than Diwali .
When this festival started ? Not very clear ...though !
A story behind this festival or we can say bringing Ganesha to home, was started by Lokmanya Tilak ji ,an Indian freedom fighter due to a ban in Hindi Gatherings by British Government in 19th century ,which helps to do get-together in form of festival .
But another very nice logic is , we bring Ganesha to bring positivity and remove all our pain and worries .
So by this we start our trip ...
Every one should visit once Mumbai in Ganpati Festival . These 11 days you will feel positive and good vibes around you . You will find Ganesha idols in every 2 or 3 KMS where ever you go .
In entire city ,there are lots of famous Ganesha idols pandals  like Andheri cha Raja , Girgaon cha Raja , Khetwadi Ganraj,GSB Kings circle,Dongri  etc . having their own historic means .
But ,out of these I love and visit every year Lalbaug Cha Raja , Ganesh Galli  and Chinchpokli Cha Chintamani .. and obviously Siddhivinayak Temple .

Best time to Visit :

FOR LALBAUG CHA RAJA :

It's  best to visit it in the starting days of Ganpati festival till 5th day of festival ,because post to that so much crowd and rush and long waiting lines .
Also , I like to go in the evening to get a glimpse of lights and festival feelings .

*Take a local to Chinchpokli and get down there ,post to that just follow the crowd .You will see lots and lots of people are going in same direction .

* Take care of your belongings.

* Ask police security guards about the correct line as there will be two line
1. Mannat Line : those wants to touch the feet of Ganesha and puts the wish to get fullfiled go in this line . Waiting time of queue  is 15 to 16 hours sometime 20 hours too .
2. Mukh Darshan : It has a different queue where you won't be able to touch the feet but yes get a good glimpse of Ganesha .
3. Vip Line : pay the price and visit in just couple of minutes .
