Andhericha Raja in Mumbai – famous Vinayaka Chaturthi Ganesh Pandal

Andhericha Raja, Andheri Cha Raja, is one of the most famous and popular Ganesha Pandals in Mumbai during Ganesh Chaturthi. So how popular is Andhericha Raja? If you wish to sponsor the idol of Andhericha Raja in Mumbai you will have to wait till 2029. People who had booked 13-years ago are getting a chance to sponsor Lord Ganesh idol for the 2009 Ganeshotsav. The long list of devotees in queue is enough to sponsor all the needs till 2053.
A major difference between Andhericha Raja and other Sarvajanik Ganesh Mandals in Mumbai is that the Ganesh Visarjan takes place not on the usual Anant Chaturdasi day but on the Sankashti Day, around five days later.
Andhericha Raja is also a wish fulfilling deity. Thousands of people have had their wishes fulfilled after praying to Andhericha Raja and this is one reason why there are so many devotees who are patiently waiting to sponsor idol, jewellery or any part of the Ganesh Pandal.
Andhericha Raja is managed by Azad Nagar Sarvajanik Utsav Sam…
