Owner description: Sitting on a jetty in the Arabian sea, this spectacular white mosque was built to honor and house the remains of the Muslim saint Haji Ali.

In Mumbai and looking to spend a couple of hours at a decent place. Then irrespective of what religion you follow you should head to this mosque. But make sure it is accessible at that moment as the same is approachable during low tides only.

This is a great place with divinity reaching the extreme and can be visited round the year. The best thing is the charm it offers along with its location. Once the visit to Dargah is complete dont forget to spend time at the back of the mosque. You can take 100 photos there and will still look to have more. The background is picturesque.

In short a place one wont regret visiting.

Haji ali dargah located in the midst of the sea. very divine and known for d religious beliefs. Many followers visit it all around the year. The charm is lively but the place needs a lot of maintenance.
During the entry the shopkeepers and beggars distract the visitors.

You can only access this mosque when the tide is down as the path to get there is completely submerged.
I've been here around 5 times on separate visits during my visits to Mumbai. It's full of locals (both Hindus and Muslims) many of whom climb the rocks at the back of the building. Be sure to walk around the whole place - despite the mayhem and crowds, you can find some respite around the back, where people are either praying in silence, or sitting on benches.

You'll find a lot of people (including the blind and disabled) lining the path to the Mosque, and also street vendors selling souvenirs and flowers and religious items. It's not a particularly pretty sight, and you may get haggled (though I find it much less than other places in India), plus there's a lot of rubbish dumped around the sea, but if you're in Mumbai you're presumably not there for the tranquility and fresh air!

If you go there at the right time you may be lucky enough to hear the blind Sufi singers which is quite beautiful to listen to.

Visit this place if you want to experience a holy Muslim site in the sea, and yet in the heart of Mumbai. It's quite a unique experience.

Haji ali was a sufi saint and this mosque is built in his memory.It is situated on a tiny island in the middle of the sea and one enters through a pathway from mahalaxmi.
the pathway and entry is choked with beggars and the management has done little to either remove them nor to improve the path considering it has a lot of contributions.
however once you are inside the shrine it is nice ,women and men follow different corridors to get to the shrine ,there are sufi singers sometimes who sing soulful music .
best time to visit would be early morning avoid peak monsoon and not during festivals.
once you come out you can enjoy juices,icecream and fruits at haji ali fruit corner,their sitaphal icecream is super.
