The monuments itself is nothing to call home a bout but its location right in the middle of the bay is quite unique and the atmosphere on the sanctuary grounds is very nice when week-end pilgrims flock to it.

Nothing really special about it.. its a Mosque surrounded by a lot of beggars and merchants.. you can check it from your car no need to go there unless you want to pray.. it is located in the sea but the sea is very dirty.. length of the visit recommended is not more than 30 mins.

A place is pure magic, but you must choose a right time to visit. We tried at night, during the tide and the water simply blocked our way. We could try to walk through but the pollution you see in the toxic waters of the surrounding sea was repelling. Still the view was astonishing and it is a must see... More

The place is located in the sea with road constructed to travel by foot. Spend some time here and you can feel the peace of mind & soul. A holy place for Muslim Community but people from every religion visit.

I had been to this place with my friend. The place is beautiful. The Dome is bedecked with pieces of Glass and the reflection of lights on this gives a glittering look. We need to tie a handkerchief on our head before entering the primises and wash our legs as we enter inside the Mosque. Morethan anything this Mosque is... More

Another place in the Mumbai tourist map which everyone visits. The dargah is present on the sea. But to this day I am not able to figure out how can the Mumbai town planner turns a blind eye to the path towards the dargah. It's a sight which is better to forget and with every step you will think twice... More
