We were taken here whilst on a walking tour of the markets and bazaars. I'm so glad we came to see the temple.

Mumbai gets it name from her. It is situated at Zhaveri Bazaar. It is the goddess of the Kolis (fishermen community) and literally speaking this temple has withstood test of time.

Inaccessible by a 2/ wheeler. Literally, it's in a garbage can. Visit the God in a photograph. No use disturbing it's image seeing them in such a filthy place.

Mumbadevi temple is located in one of the most crowded area of Mumbai. It is a very old temple which has been in existence for decades & in fact the city got its name from this deity. Not a place where any one can go. Only the devotee would venture into the crowded by lanes to reach this temple
