One of newest attraction around Mumbai. The place is extremely peaceful. There are short duration free meditation courses being offers. One can vist by ferries (meant for Esselworld) from Gorai or by road from Bhayender (road is narrow).

One can see its grand stupa from quite a distance. It is very serene and peaceful place. Main attraction is photo museum. You get a... More

Didn't know at first that such a huge facility existed in the quiet fishing village of Gorai. I had come for a picnic to Maxwell Resort Uttan & some people suggested that we visit this place. I'm sure glad I did ! This place is beautifully built with great architectural designs reminiscent of the the grand pagodas one sees when... More

I almost killed my friend for bringing me there. It is a 10-15 min walk in the scorching sun from Essel world entrance.

The construction is not complete yet...only the top shines brightly and fools people like my friend! and yes the staff there is... More
