Serene Sacred Place
Jul 2019 • Family
Very beautiful. Serene peaceful calm and so holy.
The temple was built by Srimant Chimaji Appa in 1739 to fulfill his vow-Mannat made to Vajreshwari Devi when he conquered the majestic Bassein-Vasai fort from the Portuguese after a long and tough battle.
Tall steps to climb

ancient temple built by Peshva
Dec 2019
17th century temple built by Chimaji Appa ( Maratha warrior). Few steps to climb for senior citizens there are hand rails to hold on and steps are easy to climb. Temple opens at 5.30 in morning. There are small restaurants nearby. Parking can be done on road itself.There is also a story depicted on wall in old mythology about this goddess. Overall good place to visit for religious .

Beautiful temple !!
Oct 2018 • Couples
The Aai Vajreshwari Devi Temple is a beautiful temple made of black stone. It is located on a small hill & requires one to climb a series of about 50 steps. Apart from the temple it also provides a panoramic view of the places around. The temple is located on a detour from the Bhiwandi - Wada road from the Ambadi Naka & on a detour from the Mumbai - Virar highway from the Shirsad Naka depending upon where you are traveling from. There is very limited parking space available since the temple is located in the town center with very narrow roads. Recommended to park little away & walk upto the temple.

Majestic

Hardly the adjective associated with places of worship, but most suited for this temple. Built like a fort on top of a hillock, it has an aura about it. The stone dome of the hall reflects the power of the maratha rulers who built the temple.

The presiding dieties are Mahalakshmi, Vajreshwari, Renuka, Kalika and Parashuram (One of the few places with a prominent idol for Parashuram) with beautiful stone idols. Many other smaller temples are located within the compound. The Datta temple houses an ancient Rudraraksha tree.

The premises are clean and well maintained. However, it can be very crowded on weekends and festival days as it's a revered temple and the nearby sulphur springs draw huge crowds.

The temple is a 30 minute detour from the NH-48 along a scenic road and is also accessible by public transportation. Parking is a problem during the crowded weekends because of the narrow road - the temple in in the heart of the town center. The local shopkeepers try to extort as much as they can for parking. Best to park a bit away and walk down. Lot of small eateries surround the temple.

Divine !! Serene !! Spiritual Bliss !!!
Nov 2018 • Family
This is beautiful temple located in small village of Vajreshwari . The temple complex is fortified by fort like structure and is on a hill. One needs to climb some fifty odd stone steps. For seniors to climb these steps can be herculean task hence I often park my car at parking bay which almost near the temple complex and makes it easier for seniors.
The temple is dedicated to Goddess Vajreshwari . The temple complex was built by Chimaji Appa , the brother Baji Rao Peshawa after the victory over Portuguese at Vasai.
The travel from Mumbai to Vajreshwari is 2 hours drive. The driving the car is pleasure to this place except for few traffic snarls .

Shree Vajreshwari Yogini Devi Temple..
Aug 2018 • Family
The Shree Vajreshwari Yogini Devi Mandir is a Hindu temple dedicated to the goddess Vajreshwari, on banks of the river Tansa

The temple opens at morning 5:30 and surrounding is pleasant once you climb some 50 odd foot steps.

The main gate entrance has drum house, and like Fort's entrance.
The temple surrounded by a stone wall like a fort.

There are around twenty-one hot water springs in a five-kilometer radius of the temple.

Everything is peaceful.

Serene !!
Apr 2018 • Family
Beautiful temple amidst a small village. Big trees of Mango, neem - the air is fresh and the local are so helpful.
52 stone steps, lobby and surrounding area is so peaceful :)
1 River
21 hot water springs in the radius of 5 km, but 7 are active and 1 km away from the main temple. Locals have put up their tea/coffee and Chinese stall and give plastic mugs on rent for INR 10 to tourist to take out the hot water from the springs! The miracle is one hot spring (kund) is right inside the river but still, the temperature of river and spring varies.

Serene temple
Feb 2018 • Family
This temple is very peaceful. You have to climb steep stairs for it. You have the hot springs a little ahead of the temple; but you will need a vehicle to reach. The road to the temple is a bit bumpy but otherwise smooth. Must visit for those who have faith!
