This majestic pagoda, even seen from Mumbai skies (flights) is located in Gorai, accessible by road as well as ferry. It is one of the best landmarks in Mumbai which should be visited by anyone seeking peace & harmony in the hush hush life.

Been there twice with a friend. I loved the meditation session of 30minutes. The volunteer guides are good source of information about Buddhism there. you get surprised when you reach there and see the size of Pagoda.

ITs accessible by boat and road both. It can be visited along with a visit to the amusement park Essel World. Or a visit to the nearby Gorai Beach. The place looks amazing in the night time with the lights on.

The Global Vipassana peace pagoda located in Gorai is a must visit! The architecture is breathtaking. If you are not a qualified student, you can still participate in a complimentary 10 minutes guided Vipassana session. This Burmese style pagoda is very beautiful. Dont miss out some mouth watering treats at their canteen... and some very inspiring books at the book... More

I would say if some one dont know how to meditatie, you can just sit in that place, meditation will happen automatically. The place is full of positive vibration, just enjoy the meditation by sitting there. It will be better if you have done 10 day course
