Haji ali dargah located in the midst of the sea. very divine and known for d religious beliefs. Many followers visit it all around the year. The charm is lively but the place needs a lot of maintenance. During the entry the shopkeepers and beggars distract the visitors.

You can only access this mosque when the tide is down as the path to get there is completely submerged. I've been here around 5 times on separate visits during my visits to Mumbai. It's full of locals (both Hindus and Muslims) many of whom climb the rocks at the back of the building. Be sure to walk around the... More

I visited this mosque last year inspite of having seen it at a distance from the road and from rocks near Mahalakshmi temple. There is no fees and no exorbitant charges. Even though it is called a moaque, it is a most secular place. One can buy Chadars made either of flowers or fabric to lay on the shrine. The... More

This is a good place to get a glimpse of Islamic culture and its pilgrims. The walk out the long causeway is filled with people of all sorts, making their way to honor the tomb of this Muslim saint. It is good to make an offering at the tomb itself (you can purchase flowers or pieces of fabric) and to... More

The best part about Haji Ali mosque, besides its unforgettable location across a foot causeway, is the people who come to it. The visit is supposed to get you a wish granted. You're surrounded by people of all faiths, most dressed up in holiday finery, coming to this holy place. The mosque itself is not too remarkable, architecturally. But all... More
