Description

Chinchpokli & Parel Ganesh Idol Workshop

 

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. If you're interested in finding out, it's possible to see the statues being crafted.

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 weeks leading up to the start of the festival, as this is when the finishing touches are put on the idols.
