Haji Ali Dargah was constructed in 1431, in the memory of a Muslim merchant, Sayyed Peer Haji Ali Shah Bukhari. Located on an island close to the sea shore of Worli, this shrine is visited by over 40,000 people on all days, particularly Thursdays and Fridays. Being located in the middle of the sea, the dargah remains closed at the... 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

See it from a distance. The lines were long and its not that great inside. There are amazing views of this from the road which is where I recommend you view it from.

Haji Ali Mosque This Mosque was in a very poor condition with tons of garbage all over. It was crowded with locals, it was dirty, filthy, and you have the feeling of hopelessness once you were here. It belongs to India’s most important Architecture in Indo-Islam style. The entrance was free.

Haji Ali is located in the middle of the Arabian Sea, connected to land by a long concrete walkway/jetty. Be prepared for the experience, as you will encounter many things you wouldn't expect. 1) You will get wet by the water splashing against the walkway 2) you must check the tides as the walk way gets covered by water during...

I like it a lot. Mosque almost build in the Arabian Sea. You need to go through man-made road through Sea. You will enjoy the path to reach holy place.

This Mosque is probably in one of the neatest locations I have ever seen a religious site in, out in the middle of the water, reached by a concrete walkway. Going out to see it in the middle of a deluge during Monsoon season was probably the first reason I didn't like my visit. The second is that I was... More

Since it is on an island, it is a good place to take your children. You feel cut off from Bombay and yet you still are very much there. Like all mosques women are not allowed in a certain part, but otherwise you are free to roam and see this place of worship.
