Peaceful time at mumbadevi temple

Went to mumbadevi temple and had a peaceful time over there. It is a very old temple and mumbai is actually named after the goddess itself so it tells the importance itself.

This is a very old temple of Mumbai located in the crowded Zaveri Bazaar area. Mumbai city has been named after this iconic temple Sadly it is not well maintained. But it is an integral part of Mumbai history.

Do try the Gujarati farsan or jalebi... More

Mumbadevi temple is the one from which the name of the city Mumbai is actually derived. The place is very near to Marine line station. This is one of the oldest temples in mumbai and certainly it is worth going for visitors

Overshadowed a bit by other famous temples such as Siddhivinayak. But is still pretty good during a visit to the city.

Great divine place. The temple is in jhaveri bazar mumbai and the name of mumbai comes from the very own goddess mumbadevi. The architecture is simple and very old the significance is the devotion which local people have with this temple. the place is surrounded with a lot of food joints and the jewelry market. Great place to visit
