Shri Subha Siddhi Vinayaka Mandir

A hub for devotees in Delhi, Shri Subha Sidhhi Vinayak Temple was originally a local society temple. This Vinayak Temple is situated in Mayur Vihar of east Delhi. It was initially built with the initiative of a small prayer practicing area where people could come and pray. This temple has gained immense popularity and wisdom amongst not only locals but gradually it has become a peace seeking destination for most of the nearby residents also.

Gradually, the temple has been renovated not only in terms of structure but it has also managed to create a space for more deities who are prayed here. Regular pooja and kirtan activities at the temple have made it extremely popular. Now there are bhajan groups and shloka groups which perform here in co operation with local residents.


Though the Vinayak Mandir was built on a vacant plot in Mayur Vihar area, the structure has been inspired by a typical temple with a shikhar or a peak style. There are multi step stone carvings on the outer structure which tapers gradually into a peak at the top. There is a lot of space around the temple to sit in its vicinity. While the Vinayak Temple is the main structure here, it is surrounded by some other structures. There are two other temples here, one for the Navgrahas and one for lord Hanuman.  Both of them have similar structures and are situated adjacent to the main temple.

However, Vinayak Temple was reconstructed and made a permanent structure by constructing a first floor and a Vimanam. In 1999 the DDA authority regularised the temple land and immediately a second phase construction was started. As part of this scheme, a basement and kitchen were constructed along with a ground, first and second floors on the right side of Vinayak Temple. The construction was completed in 2002. With the increase in the numbers of devotees, A lord Shiva idol was also placed. The maha puja or Kumbabhishekam was performed in the year 1997. Later, in the year 2003 for Devi lalithambika and Lord Hanuman. All these additions have made Lord Vinayak complex a huge hub for almost all kinds of devotees who come to pray to their principal deity.

Not only this, later in the year 2005 a temple for Lord Subramanya (Murugan) was started and with this a lot of development was undertaken within the premises of the temple to enhance its beauty. There were major changes of relocations of the navgraha and the shiva mandir and a staircase was made on the opposite side to ease efforts of the devotees. There after no construction has taken place and every corner of the temple land and the premises has been utilised thoughtfully and with great efficiency.


The temple was built with the necessity of a worship place in one of the vacant plots in pocket 4. A place was needed for the residents to worship and conduct bhajans as well as the daily puja. With this proposal, Lord Vinayaka idol was installed on 11-12 November, 1989. From there, gradual developments with the help of DDA and push of local residents, this temple has been able to develop into a major tourist attraction.
