The Mumbadevi Temple is located in the middle of old Mumbai and is tucked away in a bylane. While you are walking towards the temple, you will be surrounded by noise, and the hustle-bustle of a crowded market area. However, once you enter the temple complex, you will find it calm and serene.

Always heaving, always interesting and, if you can find someone to point out the extraordinary gods on one of the doors then that'll make your visit even better!

Mumbadevi temple is most popular in mumbai because mumbai name coming from MumbaDevi Temple.The structure of MumbaDevi Temple is a great sight for any individual who visits this sanctum. The highlight of the MumbaDevi Temple is the symbol of Goddess Mumbadevi, enhanced with a royal silver crown, very brilliant accessory and a nose stud.

Even though it's the oldest temple in the city. It's really nice. Doesn't have long queues, although it always has a decent crowd. Must visit if you are in Mumbai- as the city is believed to be running thanks to her blessings :-)
