We made a stop on our Mumbai tour. The place was overcrowded and we couldn't see much. Nevertheless I've found this place interesting being a part of other culture and religion. To be respected and admired!

I came across this temple on my way down to Banganga Tank. Just inside the gate is a really useful notice board in English and I guess Hindi with the rules tourists are expected to adhere to. Respectful dress, leave your shoes and water with the ‘watchman’ and only allowed to the outer landing, not the temple inside proper, must... More
