Built in middle of the sea, this is one of the best attraction & devotion place in Mumbai. There is a particular time in day (twice) when you would not be able to enter the dargaah due to high tides. However, if you are in the dargaah during the high tides, the scene is amazing. You get to see the... More

without being disrespectful, this place is disgusting (I'm not talking about the religion or the temple). It is full of rubbish everywhere, the water smells a lot, the building is not well conserved, and it's a long walk to be disappointed at the end.

After praying go... More

Tired after the days work if you are a Mumbaikar or on a visit to Mumbai for fun, just head to this mosque irrespective of what sect you follow. Just make sure you visit this during low tides as the same is not accessible during high tides. A very very refreshing feeling will cover you. One must sit on boulders... More

Had been here sometime last year with my family. Its in south mumbai, and a place that should be on your To-Visit list if you're religious and believe in the almighty. It might get a little crowded but is managed okayish.

A mosque housing a Dargah built on a tiny islet 500 meters from the coast, in the middle of Worli Bay in the vicinity of Worli, Mumbai. It is Arabian Sea around. You need to walk nearly 0.5 km through the causeway without any railings to help you, and the sea on both sides. The Dargah is a brilliant specimen... More

The walk to the halji ali is little dirty, but the mosque is nice and peaceful to sit and pray! The people who take care of your shoes when you're inside the mosque don't ask for anything specifically, its upto you what you want to give!

looks a magnificent landmark built on some rocks out to sea, and is quite striking dressed in white marble. The story is that on returning from a religious trip an important religious man died on the return and was placed in a casket and buried at sea but washed up on the rocks. A tomb was then erected on the... More
