Hello Everyone.Today I am very excited because So-Saree features its first male guest post contributor.
The Bappa Series will be divided into three parts.
The Second One - The Gorgeous Ganpatis in and around Mumbai
The renowned mandals of Mumbai are a must watch during Ganeshtosav.
Both the GSB ganapatis (King Circle & Wadala) are the richest ones in Mumbai. The King Circle idol has gold worth almost 22 crores & had taken a insurance of 260 crores this year for the festival !
The Khetwadicha Raja - Khambata lane Ganesha idol this year was 27 feet tall !
Girgaoncha Maharaja of Akheel Mugbhat S.G.M. had a 21 feet idol made from clay (Shaduchi maati) and therefore is the biggest eco-friendly idol !
The small yet beautiful Ganesha idol of Keshavji Naik Chawl in Girgaon is the 1st sarvajanik ganeshotsav mandal of Mumbai and is in its 122nd year now !The mandals of Lalbaug & Parel have their own reputations which almost everyone is familiar with.
