Haji Ali Mosque, Mumbai (Bombay)

(1,000+ reviews on the web)
Landmark Religious Site
A representative example of Indo-Islamic architecture, Haji Ali Mosque dates back to the 15th century, erected to commemorate a prosperous merchant who gave up all his material possessions in order to make a pilgrimage to Mecca. A causeway connects the mosque with the rest of the world, but during high tides, water submerges this ramp and renders it inaccessible. Centuries old, the entire construction is slowly succumbing to erosion, mainly due to saline winds and more than two million visitors per year.

  • One of the most peaceful place on earth and it's a must visit to enjoy the spirit of GOD. It's a 500m walk to the main hall and the walk is on the pebbles. The Pilgrimage is magical and magnificent. The nice songs sung at the outside the hall shall make your soul at peace...
  • One of the holiest Sufi of Islam. But this place needs to be reviewed with some reality check aspects also. The place is heaven for beggars of kind. You would find most of them sitting on the sea walk way and some at the entrance of sea walk way and dargah respectively. For Cleanliness only 1 star for the place and its surroundings. Very worst level of cleanliness you can expect. And the current dargah structure needs serious overhauling and the work is carried out at a snail pace speed. When there is a high tide and when you are crossing the sea walk way, you will find local slum kids waiting for your foot wear to get washed with the wave and will demand 100-200 Rupees to give it back to you. Some times more than that. And there you will find them exchanging harsh and bad words with the pilgrims. And I am also surprised to see that the sea walk way still submerge during high tides and this phenomena is same since last couple of years. Don't the management ever thought of raising the height of the sea walk way since this long years to make it accessible 24x7 for people at large. ??? The only place I loved is the mosque at the entrance of walk way. Clean and maintained.
  • Awesome place.. Peaceful and sacred!! This place is never going to disappoint you.. Loved it.
  • Must see spot irrespective of religion. The walk in the stone pathway above the sea is too good. Just check out the tide timings before hand in the website. Or else you might go there and the stone path might be submerged due to high tides.
  • The place is good. Nicely maintained even after ages. Must visit.
