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.

I was great to visit again to the Holy temple. The darshan was easy to do and pray. Along with the main temple there are small temples of gods as well.
