  • Best best best temple of Lord Shiva.. Must visit if you are near by. All your pain will be lost and you will return with full of positive attitude
  • It is great place to be at You will find an inner ☮️ peace visit there, Temple is well cleaned and lovely, You can go there from CST directly by taking a cab which hardly takes Rs.70 or you can take bus as well. Shiv ling is beautifully garnered with flowers but you are not allowed to take photographs inside the temple.
  • This is very ancient Shiva temple. Wheelchair accessible. If they maintain cleanliness. It will be much more nicer.
  • Its my first time here but the temple is really good and peaceful. Its best to go in afternoon hours to get the best Darshan and Abhishek. They start putting barricades at around 3.30 as the rush starts from 4.30.
  • Serene place amidst the crowd of Mumbai. When there is Shivshambho every place goes five star. Besides that there is a lift for kids, senior citizens, and physically challenged.
