Siddhivinayak Temple Mumbai – A Place to Find Complete Devotion

India is mainly known for two things, one is the mouth-watering spices and the other is undisturbed belief in God, which makes it one of a kind. Considered as one of the most devoted temples in the world, Siddhivinayak Temple Mumbai is said to be the gateway of religious devotion. This temple of Lord Ganesha is considered the starting point of everything you want to begin. With a devotee’s belief combined with the blessing of Lord Ganesha, every block coming in the way can be curved.

The temple was not that large as I imagined but the magnificent architecture did cast a charming spell on me. The doors of the temple lead from sanctum where the images of Aastavinayak were displaying the eight manifestations of Lord Ganesha. After my glimpse of the eight manifestations, I went to see the Lord himself. Placed in the centre, the statue of Lord Ganesha had four arms with a lotus in one, an axle in the second, followed by the modakas (sweets loved by Lord Ganesha) and the a garland of beads in the last one.

According to the old beliefs, it is said that if anyone speaks in the ear of the chief devotee of Lord Ganesha, which is called Mushak, any wish can be fulfilled. The statue of Ganesha was glazing as if it had some kind of magical powers. Being a Tuesday, the locals were coming in to offer their prayers to God. Instead of Wednesdays, Tuesdays are considered the auspicious day when the flock of devotees came to the temple premises to pray. Riddhi and Siddhi, which are said to be the two affiliates of Lord Ganesha, are praised by people too.

Set in the heart of Mumbai, Siddhivinayak Temple Mumbai served me to catch a sight on the deeply rooted faiths of people. After my prayer and devotion, I bowed down in front of the almighty, asked him to forgive me for all my bad deeds and left. On my way back, I could still smell the fragrance of the fresh flowers from the Phool Gali, where sellers sold the flowers for people to buy and offer them to God. By then, it was time to enter a historical zone at Jahangir Art Gallery.

Gateway of India – Majestic yet so Humble

For a virtual tourist like me, Mumbai is the destination where I get the answers to all the questions regarding fashion. Coming from a conventional city of Jaisalmer and plunging into a contemporary city of Mumbai is quiet unacceptable for the people. But being an implicit component of the fashion world it was predictable for me. So decide to finally use my bus booking app and check out my favourite city in “Mumbai”. Technology has made everything so easy.

“Welcome to the land of opportunities” is the inviting gesture that I felt when my eyes fell on the Gateway of India Mumbai. It was incredible gazing at the massive structure, which is entry way to the Arabian Sea.

Overlooking the Mumbai harbor, the colossal construction was once the splendor of British Raj in India. The monument provides number of unemployed citizens with opportunity to earn their living through modes of photography, food stalls and roadside snacks sellers. It was erected to celebrate the first visit of celebrities, King George V and Queen Mary to Mumbai. George Wittet was the architect behind the designing of this monument who took 4 years to complete it.

The Taj Hotel of Mumbai is also located nearby with the tale of brutally murdered guests by the arsonists on that contemptible day, which I never like to recall. It dazzles the same way it used to, initially. What a restoration? The wafting cool breeze was nurturing me with energy and rejuvenation. The reminiscence of the college days with friends in Jaisalmer brought distinct grin on my face. It was the time when a few of us used to assemble in the corridor, bunking tedious classes. I really miss those days.
