This is certainly a must visit, not only for every tourist who comes to Bombay but also for every Bombayite. Offers pristine views of pagodas which are replicas of the ones in Burma(Myanmar). One can easily reach this place by ferry( from Gorai) and send half a day at least. Don't miss the beautiful sunset views!!

Trip to Pagoda via fairy cuts your travel time a lot. Entrance to the temple is huge and welcoming. The site is by the side of a preserved forest and open space. Inside the Pagoda, only meditating people are allowed. A peaceful and nice place away from hustle & bustle of the city.

The most peaceful and noise free place in Mumbai. It has some great paintings depicting the life of buddha and makes for a perfect afternoon getaway.
