Mythological History: 

Siddhivinayak is a Ganapati temple dedicated to Lord Shri Ganesha. This temple is located at a place called Prabhadevi in Mumbai city of Maharashtra state. This temple of Lord Shri Ganesha is a famous temple of Hindus. The biggest feature of Lord Siddhivinayak is the bending of the trunk towards the right. The second of Siddhi Vinayak is that he is a four-armed idol. This characteristic idol has four hands (Chaturbhuj), holding a lotus in the upper right, a small ax in the upper left, a bowl filled with sacred pearls and modaks in the lower right, flanking the deity on either side are Riddhi and Siddhi, goddesses of purity, fulfillment, prosperity. And is a symbol of wealth. There is an eye carved on the forehead of the deity, which is similar to the third eye of Lord Shiva. Although this temple is neither counted among the 'Ashtavinayaka' of Maharashtra nor has any connection with 'Siddha Tek', Ganapati Puja has special significance here. But despite being different from the Ashtavinayaka, its importance is no less than that of any Siddha-Peetha.

Siddhivinayak Temple was built in the year 1801 AD by a person named Lakshman Vithu. The construction of this temple was funded by a rich, childless woman named Deubai Patil, in the belief that Lord Ganesha would fulfill the wishes of other women who had not yet had a child. The ancient temple was a small structure. There was a black stone idol of Shri Siddhivinayak, which was two and a half feet wide. This temple has been rebuilt several times in the last two decades. Recently, a decade ago in 1991, the Government of Maharashtra provided 20 thousand square feet of land for the grand construction of this temple. At present, the building of Siddhi Vinayak Temple is five-storeyed and apart from Pravachan Graha, Ganesh Museum, and Ganesh Vipeetha, there is also a hospital on the second floor, where patients are given free treatment. There is a kitchen on the same floor.
