The Haji Ali Dargah in Mumbai is an embodiment of unwavering faith, beauty beyond words and sheer majesty. A perfect example of Indo-Islamic architecture, the Haji Ali Dargah is a mosque and tomb and one of the most important landmarks in Mumbai. Constructed in 1431, the mosque is dedicated to the memory of a wealthy Muslim merchant Sayyed Peer Haji... More

Haji Ali is a holy place between the sea and location of the mosque is quite mesmerizing. I felt very calm with the aura of the mosque.

The location is beautiful, with views across Mumbai when the tide is low. The walk to the mosque is filled with people wanting to sell you things and ask for money, so be prepared for that. Also women must cover their heads when entering the mosque. A historical must-see in Mumbai.

This a holy place, the only thing which you may not like is the pathway through which you reach the mosque, The conditions of the beggars lying there will make you run way from that place. The place is considered to be one of the landmarks of mumbai. People visit there in large number, so be ready for crowd. Beware... More

Why would a place of worship be treated like this? Only in India we have the gall to call a place a landmark of tremendous faith (look at the number of people going there with great hopes) and the entire place is almost a scene out of hell. Beggars are an inescapable part of the landscape but I could not... More

All need to cover their heads inside the Dargah so dont forget to carry ur scarf or hanky. Offering can be bought inside the dargah..no need to carry all the way.... More

We passed by here twice, at different times of day. Did not stop and walk to it, but I can say that even a drive by is interesting, if you are going by that way. Seeing it twice at different times of day allowed us to see the tide at different levels. Amazing how the walkway gets completely submerged at... More

The whole setting around haji Ali will make you humble. The dargaah is right into the sea and when tide strikes the whole setup gets submerged. You find people of all faiths ... And if you visit it in the evening the dance of faith the massive sea and the compassion of haji Ali will keep you engaged
