C1 ( 2014.12.09 ) This mosque was not bad, and worth to visit. But there was too many poor people on the way to temple. The mosque's size was not big, not small, and many people enjoyed their way, worship, photo, chatter. But I couldn't enjoy this attraction atmosphere, because thought of the poor hang over my head. And too... More

Not to miss Haji Ali Mosque. This marvelous mosque appears to be floating on a small island in the Arabian Sea. The mosque is situated on a rocky islet out in the Arabian Sea and can be reached by a long causeway. The waves splash over the causeway making it inaccessible to visitors at times. HajI Ali Mosque was built... More

We drove past the mosque several times while in Mumbai and finally saw it on our last day. So beautiful. The architecture is amazing, and speaks to the history of islam in India. Very busy but worth it. It sits practically in the sea, which makes it even more beautiful.The only downside is that on the walk to the mosque,... More

Hazi Ali is of-course Mumbai's landmark and a must visit but not without it set of issues. Trade vultures selling and almost forcing you to buy religious accessories can be a big putoff. Begging is rampant and really kills your mind - missing limb people lying on the floor. Only if someone could remove the trading shops or atleast the... More

Haji Ali is a durgah/temple off the coast of Bombay, adjacent to Marine Drive. The walkway/path to the durgah [it certainly is not a mosque] is filthy and riddled with rubbish. The walkway is also lined by beggars with missing limbs and howling at you. Not pleasant! Especially for those with children. The durgah has a tomb in the centre... More

Haji Ali Mosque has some magical powers that would transport you to a different place which is both peaceful and magical. Though the initial walk you shall encounter numerous hawkers owing to the commercial interests but inside the mosque you shall be blessed with an aura which is inexpressible.

Banfg in the middile of the arabian ocean, This mosque is simply a pleasant place to unwind or let go of the worlds worries and relax. The Cool and crisp air of the ocean is rarely as good as it is in thi splace.
