Haji Ali Dargah 

The iconic spot of the city standing amidst heavy flowing river since1431! It’s an enchanting shrine of Hazrat Haji  Ali, a religious head of Muslims. Though, the place has an unavoidable history for the Mohammedarian sector, even tourists and locals of other religions are found praying here. You have to walk the long, narrow path before you enter the grand dargah and later near the mosque and shrine. There is also a way from behind the shrine that connects it directly to the sea. Though Mumbai have faced lots of sea mishaps, tsunami, floods in the past 400 years, but it’s really astonishing how this place seemed to have been untouched and unharmed even though it’s placed in the middle of the river. This is also one of the reasons why people from across the globe are curious to see this astounding attraction.

  4. Yeh hai mumbai Meri jaan!!This summer vacation we went to Goa then Mumbai which was a dream come true for me,your pics refresh my memories …I loved shidhi vinayak,mahalaxmi temple,Hazi Ali, bungalows of movie stars, sea shores jogging along Marine drive..just amazing,,our aamchi mumbai!!


  5. As a long time resident of Mumbai these five are certainly the top ones. More than the spots, the atmosphere of Mumbai is what enraptures the visitor. I would like to add that every locality of Mumbai has a flavour of its own which one can relish – be it the colonial grandeur of Fort, the leafy promenades of Bandra, the atmospheric Colaba or the modern highrise suburb of BKC – Mumbai offers an eclectic mixture of experiences! Mumbai forever!

    Beautiful places of religious and historical sentiments. However if people want some peace, quiet and being next to Nature. They must definitely visit the Borivli National Park.

  16. I love Mumbai but it was way too fast in terms of everyday lives than Pune. I somehow don’t adjust with the humid weather in Mumbai.

  38. I love Mumbai, but everyday life was much too fast than Pune. I don’t somehow adjust to Mumbai’s wet weather. Gateway and Marine Drive are my favourite places to visit, above mentioned, I never knew the Queen’s Necklace is known to Marine Drive, but it was super apt name!
