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.

Haji ali is just not a name. if you go in there, no matter how crowded it is, you would find peace there. Entering the main dargah will give you all the peace of mind. And you can pray in peace. No one would push you and say please don't wait for Darshan, which normally happens at many temples. Its... More

History suggests this used to be a temple before the mugal empire took over and then the mughal empire tore it down into a mosque. Go on anyday and it's packed with people of all religon/cast/creed. It's become a mecca for people who have no idea why they are there or what they are doing. You pay to enter,touts in... More

The Haji Ali Mosque is on an island that is accessable via a land bridge only at low tide. It was full of locals praying and picnicking. It was a real Indian experience. Highly recommended.
