Resembles like golden temple. One can watch from Mira Road station to borivali beach. Its better to travel borivali beach then cross the island by ferry & then take Tonga(horse cart) to reach the place. Its better to reach by 4.pm .Serene atmosphere will attract you

Nice place to visit. You can meditate or sit in silence for an hour in one of the sessions. Also reasonable food options (veg.).

Liked the idea of crossing the creek to get to this grand centre. There's a small room where they hold meditation for visitors.

The Pagoda is Beautifully Created and Must Visit at least Once Pin Drop Silence in the Hall and it is so silent that one can even hear its own hearbeat Next to Essel World/Water Kingdom

Visited this place along with family on a National holiday. Wonderful place. Inspite of the crowd, the place emanates positive energy. Very clean and well maintained. Beautiful Burmese Architecture and Engineering. They give you a 10 min short session on vipassana if you are interested. They also have a very nice collection of paintings which track the entire life of... More
