Shree Siddhivinayak Ganapati Temple Darshan Pligrimage Tour Package by Templeyatri

The Shree Siddhivinayak Ganapati Mandir is a Hindu temple dedicated

Shri Ganesh. It was originally built by Laxman Vithu and Deubai Patil on

November 19, 1801.It is one of the richest temples in Mumbai, the present

generation of Patil is staying in state of anguish near the temple.

The temple has a small hall with the shrine for Siddhi Vinayak. The wooden

doors to the shrine are engraved with images of the Ashtavinayak. The inner

roof of the sanctum is encrusted with gold, and the primary statue is of Ganesha.

In the periphery, there is a Hanuman temple as well.

Sanctified on 19 November 1801, the initial structure of the Siddhivinayak

Temple was a small 3.6 m x 3.6 m square brick structure with a dome-shaped

brick . The temple was built by the contractor Laxman Vithu Patil. The building

was funded by a rich Agri woman named Deubai Patil. Childless, Deaubai built

the temple so that the Lord should give children to other barren women.

Ramakrishna Jambhekar Maharaj, a devotee of the Hindu saint Akkalkot Swami

Samarth, buried two divine idols in the front of the managing deity of the

temple on the orders of his guru. As portended by Swami Samarth, after 21

years after the burial of the icons, a mandar tree grew at that spot with

a svayambhu Ganesha in its branches.

In the 1950s and 60s, the glory of the temple spread and a symbolic number of

devotees began visiting. However, in the same period, the owner of the plot sold

some of the temple land, contracting the complex area. After 1975, the number

of devotees expanded greatly.

The Legend about the importance of Amarnath Cave is as follows :-
This is The Cave which was chosen by Bhole Shankar for narrating the secrets of immortality and creation of Universe to Maa Parvati ji . The story goes like this . Centuries ago Maa Parvati asked Shiv ji to let her know why and when He started wearing the beads of heads ( Mund Mala) . Bhole Shankar replied when ever you are born I add one more head in my beads . Maa Parvati said ,” My Lord, my body is destroyed every time and I die again and again, but you are Immortal. Please let me know the secret of this .” Bhole Shankar replied that it is due to Amar Katha .”
Maa Parvati insisted that she may be told that secret. For long Shiva ji continued postponing . Finally on consistent demand from Maa Parvati He made up his mind to tell the immortal secret . He started for lonely place where no living being could listen it . He choose Amarnath Cave . In preparation to that He left His Nandi ( The Bull which He used to ride ) at Pahalgam (Bail gaon) . At Chandanwari He released Moon from his hairs (Jataon). At the banks of Lake Sheshnag He released the snakes . He decided to leave his Son Ganesha at Mahagunas Parvat (Mahaganesh Hill ) . At Panjtarni, Shivji left the Five Elements behind (Earth , Water, Air , Fire and Sky) which make living being . He is the Lord of these elements. It is believed that as a symbol of sacrificing the earthly world , Shivaji and Maa Parvati had Tandav Dance . After leaving behind all these, Bhole Shankar enters the Holy Amarnath Cave along with Parvati Maa . Lord Shiva takes his Samadhi on the Deer Skin and concentrate . To ensure that no living being is able to hear the Immortal Tale , He created Rudra named Kalagni and ordered him to spread fire to eliminate every living thing in and around the Holy Cave . After this He started narrating the secret of immortality to Maa Parvati . But as a matter of chance one egg which was lying beneath the Deer skin remained protected . It is believed to be non living and more over it was protected by Shiva -Parvati Asan (Bed) . The pair of pigeons which were born out of this egg became immortal having listened the secret of immortality (Amar Katha).
Many pilgrims report seeing the pair of pigeons when they trek the arduous route to pay their obeisance before the Ice-Lingam (the phallic symbol of Shiva).
