    Good morning forum members, I will be in Mumbai sometime this year not final dates yet!
    I will be visiting the Siddhivinayak temple in Mumbai and need to know a few important things about the temple and its procedures.

    1. What time does the temple open in the morning?

    2. How long does it take for darshan?

    3. Are there any particular days when it is busier?

    4. Does the temple have accommodation or do I need to find accommodation outside in a hotel nearby?

    1. The temple opens up at 5.30am from Wednesday to Monday and at 3.15am on Tuesdays.

    2. Darshan can easily take up to one hour, but on festivals, occasions, and weekends, it can take more time.

    3. As mentioned in answer 2, it is busier on festivals and special occasions.

    4. There are no accommodation facilities at the temple, and you would need to find a hotel.

    • Tuesday - Opens at 3:15 am and closes at 10:00 pm.
    The Darshans have different durations, here are some of them:
    • Wednesday to Monday Shree Darshan - Morning is from 6:00 am to 12:15 pm and evening is from 8:00 pm to 9:15 pm.
    • Tuesday Shree Darshan - Morning is from 3:15 am to 4:45 am and evening is from 12:30 pm to 8:45 pm.
    • During Vinayaki Chaturthi Shree Darshan - Morning is from 6:00 am to 7:30 am and evening is from 1:00 pm to 7:20 pm.
    • During Sankashti Chaturthi Shree Darshan - Early morning is from 4:30 am to 4:45 am, eorning is from 5:30 am until before the moon rises and evening depends on what time the Aarti is done.
    • During Maghi Shree Ganesh Jayanti Shree Darshan - Early morning is at 4:00 am to 4:45 am, morning is at 5:30 am to 10:45 am, evening is at 1:30 pm to 7:20 pm and late evening is from 8:00 pm until Shejaarti is done.

    It can be busier on Tuesdays and weekends especially during the morning and evening. Special holidays especially Hindu holidays can be very busy. It's best to time your visit on the weekday, specifically on the afternoon.

    You can find accommodations near the temple but it doesn't have its own accommodation for tourists. Here's a few:
    • Hotel Amigo. This is just 1.4 kms from the temple. Rates for rooms here start at Rs. 4,500 per night. You can find it at: Shivaji Park, Mumbai, 400028.
    • Hotel Avon Ruby. This is about 3.1 kms fro the temple. Rates for rooms start at Rs. 4,500 per night as well. You can find it at: No. 87, Naigaum Cross Road, Near Dadar Railway Station, Dadar East, Mumbai, Maharashtra 400014.
    I hope this helps!
