MUMBAI, INDIA, March 13, 2014 (Mumbai Mirror): With eyes firmly on putting Siddhivinayak temple on the tourist map, the temple's trust has brought on board Parsi architect Jimmy Mistry, who designed the much-talked about Della Tecnica tower in Dadar. Mistry made a presentation on Wednesday showing how Siddhivinayak temple would look once it is illuminated. The project will be completed in the next three months.

Mistry has agreed to take up the US$98,000 project and has waived off his fee. "It is my contribution to Mumbai," said Mistry, adding that the theme of the temple's lighting will change with the phases of moon. "We are mostly using shades of yellow, orange and magenta, which will depict the moods of Ganesha. The automated lights with dimmer panels will change with full moon, new moon, and special days such as Ganesh Chaturti, Diwali and other festivals," he added.
