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.

We were taken here whilst on a walking tour of the markets and bazaars. I'm so glad we came to see the temple. It is the one where the city of Mumbai derived her name from and it is literally buried in a myriad of very busy lanes and streets. Not a huge temple, I was surprised given it's the... More

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
