We walk the 30-odd kilometre from the Life Positive office to Mumbai`s popular Siddhivinayak Ganesh temple with thousands of devotees.
Siddhivinayak, A Short HistoryHe Siddhivinayak temple was consecrated on Thursday, November 19, 1801. It was built by a professional contractor Laxman Vithu Patil hired by Deubai Patil, a rich woman from the Agri community in Matunga, Mumbai. Deubai was childless and had resigned herself to her fate. She received the inspiration to construct a temple at the present site while she was praying. She asked the Lord to be kind to childless women like her. Over the years, Siddhivinayak has become a popular temple that is visited by film stars, industrialists and common visitors alike. Every day at least 25,000 devotees visit the temple. The numbers soar to 2 lakh on Tuesdays. Over 15 lakh devotees visit Siddhivinayak during Angarki Chaturthi or Karva Chauth. The day falls on October 15 this year.
