Monument
Take some time out of your busy travel itinerary to slow down and reflect at Global Vipassana Pagoda, a meditation hall topped with an impressive spire covered in real gold. Even if you do not meditate, the grand architecture of this attraction alone warrants a visit. Look for a large crystal on the pinnacle, which covers the world's largest stone dome built without supporting pillars. When you go, also look for a pagoda dome containing Buddha relics, library and study rooms, and a museum dedicated to the life of the Buddha. The complex also offers meditation courses. Check the attraction's website beforehand, as visitors are only allowed to enter during strict periods. Using our international travel planner, Mumbai (Bombay) attractions like Global Vipassana Pagoda can form part of a personalized travel itinerary.
