“A place of divine serenity”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 27, 2014

If you come to Mumbai just for one day or even for 4-5 hours then Global Vipassana Pagoda might be a great choice for visit. It is located 40-60 minutes by taxi from the airport. The place is amazing by its calmness and inspirational tranquility. The pagoda is erected to promote vipassana meditation as a pass to reach a peace within yourself. I did two courses at Dhamma Pattana vipassana centers that are located nearby and can say that it really works. At the last day of the course we meditated in the Global Pagoda. Despite the fact the construction works are ongoing, it is unique feeling to meditate inside such a powerful place.

Great place to meditate
Clean and very serene; peaceful
Just close your eyes, take some deep and slow breaths, and experience the peace within. Just so good to spend time at.

“Astonishing”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 18, 2014

First of all, a ferry ride is the most picturesque way to see Bombay. Leave from Versova and hop across Madh to Gorai.

The monument itself could hardly be more impressive. But it's the interior stone dome, reserved for meditators, that's the real attraction. When I really need to get away from the city, this is the closest place to do it.
