Here’s a chance to discover the real beauty of Ganesh Chaturthi. With just a few days left for the city’s biggest and most awaited 11-day festival to commence.
The colorful Mumbai Ganesh idols, which are displayed all over the city during the annual Ganesh Chaturthi festival, are an awe-inspiring sight. It’s natural to wonder about how they’re made and the amount of work that’s gone into creating them.
The skill is handed down from generation to generation, plus many migrants also come to Mumbai to help in the labor-intensive process. It gets underway around three months before the festival takes place. The best time to see the action is in the few dats leading up to the start of the festival, as this is when the finishing touches are put on the idols.
