This structure is an excellent example of architecture. This is built completely from stones with load bearing structure. It has a largest meditation hall without a single pillar to support its dome. Very well maintained and located at serene place of Gorai.

It is an awesome place for Buddhists and non Buddhists... Those who seek peace and serenity. It is not done up in a hi fi manner, but the simplicity of the management and its staff touches your heart. The structure is a marvel and a must visit not just because of the golden hues but also because of the thought... More

Must visit for travellers. Very good arrangements for food and wash rooms. No charges. Pagoda authorities very cooperative. Can be approached by boat from Borivli. Those coming by Train Bhyandar is nearest station.

It is a place for serious meditation. You need to visit their website for details. I have been there atleast 3-4 times. It a different experience. To gain the benefits, one has to practice it regularly.
