After months of State lockdown and places of worship – closed gates due to COVID-19, finally, opened on 16th November, 2020. I too planned to visit Mumbai’s Shree Siddhivinayak Temple (two-century-old).
Knowledge was enhanced by sister that one can visit only if one is having prior appointment and having a darshan ticket which can be decided by Shree Siddhivinayak Temple official App (for iOS & Android) available on Google Play or App Store.
I immediately download Siddhivinayak App and was ready to proceed.
(With this App, one can perform Live Darshan, Online Video Pooja bookings, Donate money and much more..)
First you have to select language (English or Marathi or Hindi) from the app.
Then you have to enter your details as required by the app.
Once you SIGN UP, a One Time Password (OTP) you will receive on your mobile for verification.
After verification, you have to pick a date and a time slot available for the darshan.
You will be given a Darshan Ticket (for FREE) which will be a QR Code to be shown/scanned at Shree Siddhivinayak Temple gate along with your Government Recognized ID to enter the temple for darshan.

Flowers, Coconut, Sweets are not permitted inside the temple-area. Only mobile is allowed to carry. Wearing a face mask is mandatory and one has to follow social-distancing rules.
New appointment date & time are now open for January, 2021.
Please book your appointment and have blessings of Shree Siddhivinayak Ganapati in Mumbai, Maharashtra for the upcoming New Year.
Update as on 01.01.2021
Today, 01.01.2021 was our appointment at Shree Siddhivinayak Temple, Dadar, Mumbai in the afternoon hours.
We reached little before our appointment time.
We parked our four wheeler (almost opposite Shree Siddhivinayak temple) at Twin Tower Lane.
Four Wheeler parking charges – Rs. 100/- for two hours. Motorbike parking charges – Rs. 20 for two hours.
There was long queue outside the temple-area.
I saw many devotees present in the queue not having knowledge about Shree Siddhivinayak Temple official App. We tried our best to help/guide them about Shree Siddhivinayak Temple official App. Few immediately download the app and fill their details to have an appointment in coming days for the Darshan of Shree Siddhivinayak.
Though there was long queue but within half an hour we had blessings of Shree Siddhivinayak.
Very nice disciplined arrangement by the temple authorities and the Mumbai police. Appreciated.
Social distancing was maintained. Sanitiser was present. Flowers, Prasad (प्रसाद) was available but was not allowed inside the temple-area.
You have to show QR code provided by Shree Siddhivinayak Temple official App at the temple-area entrance gate. QR code was scanned by the person present and locked-gate open automatically for the devotee to enter temple-area.
Laptop, Camera is not allowed. You have to deposit Laptop for Rs. 50 and Camera for Rs. 10 outside the temple-area.
Temple opens at 7 am and close at 9 pm. All days open.
After Darshan each devotee was given Mahaprasad (for FREE in a sealed plastic pouch) as a blessings of Shree Siddhivinayak by the temple authorities. We received Laddoo.
I had it just now before writing. It was delicious.
Hope you too will visit soon in this New Year (specially after 2020) for the blessings of Shree Siddhivinayak. The journey continues..
