It is about 15-20 minutes ferry ride from Gorai Beach and very adjacent to Essel world/Water Kingdom. It is free of cost to enter and I enjoyed the 15-20 minutes meditation which is conducted in half an hour batches. If you are lucky you would have guides who would explain you the importance of the dome and the contributions by... More

There is one more shortcut, where people can take a cab to Gorai,... More

It is based in the Northern Side of Mumbai and it shines like gold as we could make out from the flyovermumbai plane. A calm and nice place for a calm time

We had seen this vast Pagoda from the sky as our plane was leaving for Aurangabad and having never seen it before decided to pay a visit. Th pagoda is a long and stressful drive from South Mumbai but we thought that this problem could be overcome by hiring an air-conditioned vehicle with chauffer. This was a good move as... More

It's been a truly blissful and amazing experience visiting the Pagoda. Did the 20 minute meditation and felt very relaxed. A must see for anyone visiting Mumbai.

This place is worth a visit from every point of view. It's so grand that you can see it even as you wait for a ferry at Gorai on the other side. The vastness of the structure's inside is tough to describe in words. The fact that it can seat some 7- 8 thousand people at one go is testimony... More
