Ganesh Chaturthi 2019: First look of Chinchpoklicha Chintamani unveiled
The biggest highlight of the Chinchpokli Sarvajanik Utsav is the 'Aagman Sohala', which is the welcoming of the Lord Ganesha, organised 10 days prior to the festival of Ganesh Chaturthi
With less than 24 hours to go for the Ganesh Chaturthi festival to begin, the first look of one of Mumbai's most famous and popular Sarvajanik Ganpati pandals, the first look of Chinchpokli Cha Raja, which is also popularly known as the Chinchpoklicha Chintamani was unveiled today.
The Chinchpokli Cha Raja was founded in 1920 by the Chinchpokli Sarvajanik Utsav Mandal. The biggest highlight of the Chinchpokli Sarvajanik Utsav is the 'Aagman Sohala', which is the welcoming of the Lord Ganesha, organised 10 days prior to the festival of Ganesh Chaturthi.
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
Address: Chintamani Sarvajanik Utsav Mandal, A/3, Progressive Building, Dattaram Lad Marg, Chinchpokli, Mumbai
