The Dargah is simply not the place to visit in winters. There are no big waves crashing upon/near you. So, there is no real fun. The place is littered with filth and garbage. The hawkers encroach upon the passage to the Dargah. It is a stinky place. The Dargah is under renovation, so you are not allowed to experience the divine feeling of touching the holy book of the Muslims. This opinion is purely from a tourist perspective.

in theory, this should be the perfect excursion. a stand alone 15th century white mosque on a tiny island in the arabian sea, accessible during low tide via a narrow causeway. from afar, the haji ali dargah mosque is like an ethereal structure. in reality, however, as you get closer, you cannot help notice that the whole area is covered in garbage, the stench is unbearable, stall after stall is selling the same plastic tat, there are beggars left in appalling conditions and the building itself is crumbling. meanwhile, everybody is busy taking selfies. I really don’t get. How can any civilised government let its national heritage go to ruin like that. It’s simply appalling.

It is one of the most famous and religious place of Mumbai and India.
It is located on La la Lajpat Rai Road around 500 meters away in the middle of seashore.This is a Dargah (Tomb) of Pir Haji ali shah Bukhari a sufi saint also wealthy merchant originally from Uzebikistan.
This beautiful white structure was given the present shape in around 19 th century.
People of every religion and caste are allowed to visit this place.The only problem is the approach road which can be developed much better.
At present some developmental work in progress in the Dargah that can be extended for improvement of Approach road also.
Mumbai trip without visit to this place is incomplete.

Monument of Pir Haji Ali Shah Bukhari located on an the coast of Worli. The mosque is open through the year but perfect visiting time is between Oct and March. Visit between morning hrs 8 to 11 am and 4 to 7 pm to avoid restriction due to high tide

On our trip to Mumbai, we planned to visit Haji Ali Dargah as I had a wonderful experience 20 years back. A serene place nestled amidst the waves of the sea, we were excited.
But our excitement soon died out as we reached the place. Hundreds of hawkers and street vendors crowded the approach road, they even try to pull you towards their shops. However we loved the sea causeway that connects the dargah to land. Sea on both side, cool breeze and sunset, it was a perfect backdrop. But you cannot ignore the garbage alongside the sea, it was everywhere. Once we get inside the shrine we were shocked, there was an unbearable stench all over the place that we could not stand. We noticed that there were toilets inside the complex and those were the source of that stench. We noticed a overall sign of mismanagement in the entire place.
It is our heritage and one of a kind, please maintain it.

Wondering about dress code for men and women to see it from outside and go inside.

Are shorts ok for men? Assume you need to cover your head. If I don't have the right clothes, are there some temporary ones available, e.g., similar to Vatican?

What about women? How long should the pants be? Exposed arms?

Thank you for your help. We plan to visit today or tomorrow.

The Haji Ali Mosque is a mosque located off a small islet on the western shores of Mumbai in the Arabian Sea. It’s probably best known for the location of the tomb and shrine of the muslim saint Pir Haji Ali Shah Bukhari. The mosque is very picturesque especially as it’s accessible via a causeway, which is lined with beggars and hawkers who have no compunction about grabbing passersby.

The only thing to really see in the mosque is the shrine. You probably need to be a member of the faithful to really appreciate it. Plus one for being pretty though.

You cannot visit this place in high tide and hence on low tide there is huge amount of rush. But the whole experience is quite unique and spiritual.

Haji Ali Dargah is one of the famous tourist destinations in Mumbai. Everyday thousands of people from different geographical region and different religious faiths visit the Dargah to pay their respect to Haji Ali Shah Bukhari and seek blessings of him. Although the Dargah is open on every day since 6:00 am to 9:00 pm (approx.), still, It becomes very crowded on Fridays and on any holidays. You have to walk a small distance to reach the Dargah. This small pathway is made of concrete on the sea. You will find many small shops, offering prayer accessories, some beggars asking alms while walking towards the Dargah. While walking through the pathway towards the Shrine, one can enjoy the amazing view of the Sea and its waves but should be careful of the waves because it lashes the pathway too. Photography is allowed here in the Dargah. The surrounding view of the city from the tomb-building campus is also very nice.

Overall it’s a great spiritual and peaceful place to visit in Mumbai.

3. Mahalaxmi Temple
4. Haji Ali Dargah
5. Nehru Centre
