One can reach the temple by taxi or bus from the main... More

Located in the busy area of Zaveri Bazar and amidst the tight security of Mumbai Police. Beautiful architecture and auspicious ambiance makes this place a worth visit. There are flower stalls outside and within the temple. Mobile phones... More

It is one of the oldest hindu temples located in kalbadevi Mumbai.. It is dedicated to the city's patron goddess Maa Mumbadevi.. So if you get a chance, do visit this temple once.. The nearest railway station is Marine lines/charni road.. From there you can either walk or take a taxi to the temple...

Nice temple of MahaLaxmi, one of the oldest in Mumbai, situated in South Mumbai. One can go by getting down at Churni road station either by walk or by taxi with basic fare. Must visit place. Open almost for entire day!

Mumbadevi is believed and is goddess of Mumbai. All mumbaikars do visit this shrine whenever they start any new venture / activity. Newly wedded couples go for mata's blessings. Situated in a very busy area of mumbai, but after reaching there one doesnot feel so. Vehicle Parking is a bit problem here

It was difficult to locate the temple using GPS. However we could reach the place using GPS which was backed up by street queries. It was extremely difficult to find a place for parking. (I wish the Municipality creates facilities for parking and also washrooms!). The darshan was however smooth.

This is a temple of maha kali... it is small but nice... not hugely crowded and you can have darshan in 10 minutes. Way to reach the temple is a small street and not that great experience... they say it is the oldest temple in Mumbai. You may want to visit this place only because of its history.
