“Jai Mata Di”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 10, 2014

A temple worth a visit, specially for people who love to trek. It located in Virar (E), if you are goin by train, come to the east side and take a rickshaw which will take Rs. 10 per seat and will reach you to Jivdani.

You will climb approx 1400 steps to reach the temple, incase you dnt wana climb or you have parents or children who cant climb, you also have an option of taking a trolly to the temple. The trolly cost u Rs. 100 to and fro during weekdays and is operation from 7.30 am to 7 pm.

While coming down u can choose to tak an alternative route, which is raw and not completely built, but its fun to climb dwn and have a look at the landscape from far distance.

The beauty and scenery to watch from dat height is amazing, if you go on a clear day you will be able to see the horizon.

Try reaching few minutes before the sunrise, its a treat to see the amazing sun heading out of the mountains :)
