Lulbaug is at the center of the MUmbai. This area was famous for Cotton Mills, but now it is famous for Ganeshotsav Mandal. This mandal was previously known as 'Sarvajanik Ganeshotsav Mandal, Lalbaug' and was founded in the year 1928. The market place at Peru Chawl was shut down in 1932. Hence, the fishermen and vendors who used to sit in the open place vowed to Lord Ganesh for permanent place for their market. As fulfillment of their wish, the fisherman and the traders established the Ganesh Idol on 12.09.1934. The idol was dressed in the customary fashion of fisherman. Since that day onwards, this Lord Ganesh has become popular as it fulfills the wishes of devotees.
Parel was one of the original seven islands that formed Mumbai. It belonged to the 13th century kingdom of Raja Bhimdev. Most of the mills in Mumbai used to be in this area till some years ago. Recently Parel has seen an influx of huge enterprises in the compounds of the long gone cotton mills. Five star hotel ITC Hotel The Grand Central, Mumbai - The Luxury Collection is located in Parel. During the time cotton mills were operating in Parel are, many thousands of mill workers called Parel home. Now cotton mill jobs have long disappeared and large cotton mill real estate is being recycled into ultra-expensive gated communities. Parel also has some famous hospitals like KEM (Municipal corporation hospital), Tata (specializes in treatment of cancer) , Wadia Hospitalsand MGM (ESI hospital). It even has the Mumbai Veterinary College and the Bai Sakarbai Dinsha Petit Animal Hospital.
