With Mumbai all set to welcome its 'Beloved Bappa' on September 2, some sarvajanik Ganpati Mandals have already held their Aagman Sohla (arrival procession). Among these, the iconic Chinchpoklicha Chintamani was the first to have a grand arrival procession in the city on August 11. This Ganesh Chaturthi is indeed a special one for this mandal as they will be celebrating their 100th year. 

Founded in 1919, Chinchpokli's Chintamani is one of the major attractions for Mumbaikars and visitors along with Lalbaugcha Raja, Ganesh Gully and Khetwadi. The idol is prepared in the workshop at Parel and the 'Aagman Sohla' that is held much before the festival is one of its specificity.
