I had undergone a vipassana course 5 years back in Igatpuri and followed that with a visit to Pagoda about an year back . The eexperience is unique and I wish to visit the place again for the calming effect it gives when you spend some time here. Highly recommended.

WOW!!! that's a great place to Meditate but to reach the place, it takes a lot of time. though Ferry is also an Option but then a lot of walking is required as the feeder connectivity service is not as frequent. However, its a WONDER worth visiting!!!

The way to reach the pagoda involves a boat ride through the back waters & then a small walk through a water park - if you are coming via Malad - probably symptomatic of the travails of man in life before getting to understand the truth.
