Temple – Siddhi Vinayak Mumbai
The Shree Siddhivinayak Ganapati Mandir is a Hindu temple devoted to Lord Shri Ganesh. It is situated in Prabhadevi, Mumbai, Maharashtra. The temple has a little Mandap with the temple for Siddhi Vinayak ("Ganesha who gives your desire"). The wooden ways to the sanctum are cut with pictures of the Ashtavinayak (the eight appearances of Ganesha in Maharashtra). The inward top of the sanctum is plated with gold, and the focal sculpture is of Ganesha. In the fringe, there is a Hanuman temple also. Siddhivinayak is notable as "Navasacha Ganapati" or "Navasala Pavanara Ganapati" ('Ganapati offers at whatever point unassumingly truly asked a wish' in Marathi) among fans. Ramakrishna Jambhekar Maharaj, a pupil of the Hindu holy person Akkalkot Swami Samarth, covered two heavenly icons toward the front of the directing divinity of the temple on the orders on his master. As forecast-ed by Swami Samarth, following 21 years after the entombment of the symbols, a Mandir tree developed at that spot with a Svayambhu Ganesha in its branches. It was Constructed on 19 November 1901, the first design of the Siddhivinayak Temple was a little 3.6 m x 3.6 m square block structure with an arch molded block Shikhara. The temple was worked by the project worker Laxman Vithu Patil. . The 2550 temple complex had two 3.6 m Deepamalas, a rest house, and living quarters for the overseer. It had a connecting lake 30 x 40 sq. m. in size on the eastern and southern sides of the temple. The lake, delved by Nardella in the mid-nineteenth century to counter the shortage of water, was topped off in the later years and the land is presently not a piece of the temple complex. Around 1952, a little Hanuman sanctum was implicit in the temple complex for the Hanuman symbol that was found during the street expansion undertaking of Sayani Road close to Elphinstone Road.
