Brilliant interiors and old sculpture combine to form this unique temple. Mumbai the Word comes from the Presence of Mumba devi or Mumba bai. Thats how the City was been named after Bombay.

The temple is worth visiting only if you up to an exotic experience. As a foreigner visiting India and Mumbai you need to have an open mind in order to reach the location of this temple. It is situated in the most crowded place of Mumbai and during the monsoon season also the dirtiest. The area to access this location... More

I have to say that finding this temple was almost as much of an ordeal as exiting it and trying to get back to where I started. Th temple itself was lovely, just very, very crowded and no pictures are allowed inside the temple. It is worth a visit, but be sure to have a good map to find it.
