Owner description: One of Bombay's holiest sites is this group of rundown temples that surround a pool of water considered to have healing powers.

I visited during July monsoon quite times, on a sunday afternoon. I found the tank very intriguing and spent some time walking and taking photographs. A friendly woman diverted the attention of two local dogs who didn't like the look of me. As I was taking pictures of the children running and jumping in the water, they asked me to take specific shots of them individually doing tricks, which I did. After they had jumped in they ran next to me jostling around to see the screen, and only when nearly all the children had disappeared and I was preparing to leave did I realise the iphone had be taken from my handbag which had been across my body on my shoulder at all times. A sad beginning to my first few days in India. Watch out for children or anybody coming close to you.

It is a heritage site.the oldest place in mumbai. The name bal Ganga came from sacred Ganga river.it is mini Ganga.
The history says that when Hindu god ram was in exile he visited this place.that time Sita became thirsty. God Ram shot an arrow in this place which Is just touching the sea. The place became a sweet water lake .it is difficult to find sweet water touching the sea.this is the story of balganga

A pilgrim's bathing spot. Interesting for what it is, but also surprisingly nondescript, if sizeable.

The area around the tank, with its small shops and everyday life, is probably more interesting.

Its a small place in Old town Bombay, its close by the hangjongeren gardens. This Old place has a tank where people takes a dip at this holy place, prays and small rituals are here to see. Around this tank are a lot of small temples te see. No tourist seeing here....Nice and peacefull place to visted. Bewind the Housselt you see the south part of colaba. Sure the best spot in town.... Enjoy

This place needs a desperate make over. The approach, the water pool and everything surrounding it. The water is green with muck
