Siddhivinayak temple is located at Prabhadevi in Mumbai, Maharashtra. This famous temple is devoted to Ganesha, the elephant-headed God of Good Fortune. The Siddhi Vinayak temple is one of the Ashtavinayak Temples and it dates back to the 18th Century. The highlight of temple is the right side tilted trunk of the elephant headed God, Ganesha, which is usually tilted towards the left.
The present form of the temple was re-constructed five years ago. The temple has a Kalash, which is a pointed dome of 12 feet high Gabhara (sanctum sanctorum) weighing 1500 kg and plated in gold. So, it facilitates the 'Darshan' of Sri Siddhivinayak from either the area surrounding the Gabhara or the stage (Sabha Mandap) constructed to conduct pujas and festivities.
The idol of Ganapati is also called Chaturbhuj as it has four arms. A lotus is
held in the upper right hand symbolises auspicious piety and a small axe in the upper left, a holy rosary of beads (Japmala) are held in the lower right and a bowl full of Modaks (a delicacy which is a perennial favorite with Sri Siddhivinayak) in the lower left. On auspicious Tuesdays, the serpentine queue of worshippers is over 2 km long.
There are television sets installed outside for those who do not have time to wait in the long serpentine queues that lead to the temple inside.
Mumbai is well connected by air, rail and road with all the places in the state as well as the country. Tourists can take the city buses from any point of the city and reach this temple.
