    This temple was gorgeous to look at and take photos. They ask you to take off your shoes at the entrance, which we did, and they were very used to tourists. The temple is lovely, and the colors are so...  more »

    Go in the afternoons or evening, its quiet and very calm place to be in...if you do the chakkar of the gabhara on top, you can see an awesome view of the city. There are pictures and carvings that has a story to tell. Its a nice place to visit and dont hurry the trip. Open to all, as long as you are clean and tidy. This temple allows photography and a must visit place for foreigners.

Where to stay in Mumbai (Bombay)

In a cramped city like Mumbai, finding a budget hotel can present a serious challenge. Many business travelers and tourists choose to stay in South Mumbai, the oldest and richest neighborhood in the city. Accommodations here put you close to most top museums, restaurants, bars, art galleries, and shops. Proximity to major attractions comes at a premium price, though--not surprising for one of the most expensive cities in Asia. If you plan to visit on a tight budget, look for options near railway stations, but prepare for low-grade rooms and few or no amenities.
