Haji Ali Dargah was constructed in 1431, in the memory of a Muslim merchant, Sayyed Peer Haji Ali Shah Bukhari. Located on an island close to the sea shore of Worli, this shrine is visited by over 40,000 people on all days, particularly Thursdays and Fridays. Being located in the middle of the sea, the dargah remains closed at the time of high tide.

The structure of this dargah symbolises Indo-Islamic style of architecture. There is a narrow pathway from the Worli bay that connects the shrine with the city. It is just a 500 yard walk for the devotees from the bay to the shrine.

Tourists can reach the place by taking taxis, auto rickshaws or buses to the Worli bay and then walking up to the dargah. The nearest railway station is Worli station; hence, people can also board on trains to reach the site. From the station, any means of public transport can be used to reach the bay, from where the dargah is just 500 yards’ walk away.

"Beautiful .."

  • 7.0/7
  • Posted Dec 22, 2016
The nearest railway station is Mahalaxmi or Mumbai central (both 2. 1 km away from Dargah). Its beautiful as it is situated on the sea shore. Do prayers in Dargah then at the backside going through the rocks we can sit there and see a beautiful view. Must see this great architecture.

"Haji Ali Dargah"

  • 7.0/7
  • Posted Nov 25, 2016
One of the most famous place in Mumbai where more than 1000 pilgrims come from different locations in a day to make their wish which comes true. It's in the middle of the sea which makes it more eye catcher.

Situated at the sea Haji Ali Dargah is a very beautiful mosque. The path which goes to mosque is really amazing. Various types of shopes are there in the path. It's a must visit place in Mumbai.

This place is situated in Arabian sea you have to walk through a passage to reach Haji Ali dargah. Here you can find cool atmosphere at Haji Ali... Nearby railway to visit Haji Ali Dargah is Mumbai central. At rainy season.

"Haji All Dargah: Great View of Sea"

  • 5.0/7
  • Posted Aug 15, 2016
However, the generosity of the worshippers is what draws the poor and infirm to this important religious site ..
Avoid this Place during high tide. The sea can wash over the causeway and there is a sewerage outfall off-shore.
Trust needs to Take care of beautification ... Its lacking in all aspects.
Only good thing about this Mosque : Faith of this place & Secondly Beautifully located inside sea with Pathway.
Even Police Security is not good enough as compare other public sites of Mumbai
How To reach ; Nearest Mumbai Local Station is Mahalakshmi. 2 Km Ride from There taxi will cost you INR 30
Or from Siddivinyank Temple its 6-7 KM taxi will cost you INR 90
Also Very near from Mumbai Central Railways Station.

"Haji Ali Dargah, Mumbai"

  • 4.0/7
  • Posted Jun 23, 2016
Haji Ali Dargah is a landmark destination in Mumbai and a famous tourist attraction as well. I visited it with my mother. It was high tide and it was a great view and an experience on the way to mosque through the famous narrow lane. The only thing I always wish is a little more cleanliness. Otherwise be prepared for a big crowd where ever you go in Mumbai. It is an integral part of life in Mumbai so no exceptions there as well.

  • 7.0/7
  • Posted May 28, 2016
One of my dream place to visit in Mumbai which I used to watch in television. It's a peaceful area where everyone can come and pray to god, no restrictions for anyone without fee. Hope to visit again with the name of god.

"A remote pilgrim place in the ocean"

  • 5.0/7
  • Posted Mar 13, 2016
Visit to this place is restricted during high tides. Best way to reach is by local train and the nearest stations are Mahalaxmi and Mumbai Central. You can also get good food inside the dargah premises and guys please do try out the paan, it's just awesome.
