The Lalbaugcha Raja, King of Lalbaug, is undoubtedly the most famous Ganesh statue in Mumbai. The mandal was founded in 1934, and has grown to be the most visited one in the city.
It is believed that this Ganesha Idol is Navsacha Ganpati (which means the fulfiller of the wishes) and hence around 1.5 million people or more visit this Ganesh Pandal daily during the 10 day Ganeshotsav festival.
There are two main lines to see the idol: a general line, and line for those wanting to make a vow or get a wish fulfilled (navas). The navas line takes devotees right to the idol’s feet, whereas the general line offers viewing (darshan) from a distance of around 10 meters away.
This Ganesh idol also gets lots of media attention as every year many celebrities visit this Ganesh Idol every day during the Ganesh festival.
Location: GD Ambedkar Road, Lalbaug (central Mumbai).
Nearest Railway Station: Walking distance from Lower Parel, Curry Road, and Chinchpolki stations.
