This is an ok temple in a very busy part of Mumbai. Gets very crowded on special days and adds to the usual traffic chaos in the busy Pedder Road area. However it is is one of the most well known temples in the city so a visit may be considered if one is in the vicinity.

I am such a strong believer. It was a usual trip with family. It is located near Haji Ali. My mom could not take the stairs as there at least 60-70 of them. We were told that on request there are men with wheel chair who take devotees who can not take stairs. I could find the wheel chair but... More

The images of the goddesses, Mahalakshmi, Mahasaraswati and Mahakali are adorned with nose rings and bangles which are considered to be signs of a woman being married which might explain the large number of married women who come here for blessings. Located on a headland, this temple is just amazing during Mumbai's Navratri. This temple is the focus of this... More

A very old temple located in Mumbai.Close to Peddar Road and opposite Cadbury House.Vehicle parking is always a problem hence its better to visit taking a public transport.Around 10-15 mins of walking from the main road before reaching the temple complex.The road to the temple is lined with shops.

Divine place to seek Mata's blessing.Very ancient temple with sea shore just besides.All facilities available nearby.One of the few places to find peace and serene.Seeking Maa's darshan itself is a boon to every devotees.
