Every year, thousands of devotees gather to get a first look of the idol at the Parel workshop. Unlike other Ganpati pandals, during the visarjan of Chinchpokli Cha Raja, devotees sing bhajans and not play music or beat drums. The Chinchpokli cha raja is also called as Chinchpoklicha Chintamani. This year, Chinchpoklicha Chintamani completes 100 years of being into existence
