Shree Siddhivinayak Temple
 
Built on November 19th, 1801 by Laxman Vithu and Deubai Patil, this temple is dedicated to Lord Ganesha. This grand, six storeyed, gold-peaked temple that you see today, was originally only a small, tiny place of worship. The lake in the temple’s complex was dug up in 19th century by Nardulla to counter the scarcity of fresh water. Within the complex, there is a small Hanuman shrine, built in 1952 for the Hanuman icon found near Elphinstone road.
 
Donations of about 100-150 million (INR) every year make it the richest temple in Mumbai and it is for this reason that this temple evolved from a small place of worship to the magnificent, opulent temple. Within the temple is a small mandap (hall) which contains the shrine of Siddhi Vinayak (Ganesh who grants your wish).Lord Ganesha’s statue resides in the sanctum and the deities of Riddhi and Siddhi are on either sides, symbolizing fulfilment, holiness, wealth and prosperity.
 
During Ganesh Chaturthi, the temple takes on an added layer of opulence and magnificence, as it is visited by lakhs of devotees. Siddhivinayak is actually known as Navasacha Ganapati or Navasala Pavanara Ganapati , which translates to 'Ganapati bestows whenever humbly genuinely prayed a wish' in Marathi. It is not a wonder that even on a daily basis, the temple is filled with people seeking blessings and offering prayers including politicians and Bollywood celebrities.
 
Haji Ali

On weekends and holidays this figure rises sharply.

Afghan Church (Colaba)

It is considered to be an improved version of the Church of St John in the Wilderness which was built in Dharamsala, Himachal Pradesh. From the time of their construction, both these churches are believed to have hosted members of the White Brotherhood who believe that Lord Jesus visits them from the Cave of Light in the Dauladhar Mountains even today.
 
Mount Mary Church (Bandra)
 
In 1760, the church was rebuilt and the statue was substituted with a statue of Our Lady of Navigators in St. Andrew's church nearby. This statue has an interesting legend. It goes that a Koli fisherman dreamt that he would find a statue in the sea. The statue was found floating in the sea between 1700 and 1760. A Jesuit Annual Letter dated to 1669 and published in the book St. Andrew's Church, Bandra (1616–1966) supports this claim. The Koli Fishermen call the statue as Mot Mauli, literally meaning The Pearl Mother ,however the pervious statue is now restored and now enjoys the place of honor in the bascilica. Both Hindu and Christian Kolis visit this shrine often giving it a kind of syncretic nature.
