The first Sarvajanik Ganeshotsav celebrations in Mumbai took place in Girgaon. Even today, when Parel-Lalbaug has become the centre of attention as far as the festival is concerned, Girgaonkars go about celebrating the festival in the manner they have followed for the last hundred years and more. On our special #GirgaonGanpati walk in this festive season, we take a closer look at the traditions, practices and celebrations of Mumbai's earliest Ganpati mandals.
