Ganesh Chaturthi is one of the most fabled festivals in Mumbai. Mumbaikars wait with the bathed breath throughout the year for the opulent Ganesh Chaturthi celebrations across the city. Apart from the locals, even people from discrete parts of the globe pay a visit to Mumbai in order to liquefy themselves in the sea of spirituality and catch the glimpses of Brobdingnagian statues of the city. To experience the happening 2019 Ganesh Chaturthi Festival in Mumbai, we made a move to Ganesh Galli (Ganesha Street) where most of the known Ganesh pandals are situated!
- LALBAUGCHA RAJA
Located at the prominent locality of Mumbai, Lalbaugcha Raja (Lalbaug’s King) is one of the most famed Ganpati of Mumbai. The enormous size of this idol has its own aura and it is believed that to be a ‘Navsacha Ganpati’, meaning one who fulfills all the wishes – this is the reason why more than 1.5 million people visit Lalbaugcha Raja Sarvajanik Ganeshotsav Mandal every year during the course of time
- MUMBAICHA RAJA
Located besides Lalbaugcha Raja, Mumbaicha Raja (Mumbai’s King) is a great crowd puller especially because of the themes and replicas Lalbaug Sarvajanik Ustav Mandal, Ganeshgalli create every year.
The idol of Mumbaicha Raja is as flabbergasting as the work this Ganesh Pandal undertakes throughout the year.
