Navi Mumbai Info

  • State: Maharashtra
  • Famous for/as: City
Navi-Mumbai (New-Mumbai), formerly known as New-Bombay, is a planned city situated on the west coast of Maharashtra, in the district of Thane. Navi-Mumbai, built in 1972, is the twin city of Mumbai and is the world’s largest planned city.

Navi-Mumbai, located on the mainland on the eastern part of Thane Creek, is separated from Mumbai by the Arabian Sea. It is mostly a hilly region with many protected wet lands. Navi-Mumbai was constructed with the main purpose of unclogging Mumbai. Today it is an emerging industrial and educational hub of India.

Navi-Mumbai has a rich historical past which is intertwined with that of Mumbai.  In 1534, Navi-Mumbai came under the rule of the Portuguese who gifted this territory to Charles II. Later, the British East India Company bought this region on lease.

In the 1970s, the region of Navi-Mumbai was selected for the location of the planned city. The planned city of Navi-Mumbai was developed by CIDCO in a series of nodes or small townships. The city of Navi-Mumbai, which spreads over Thane and Raigad districts of Maharashtra, stretches from Airoli in the north to Uran in the south, with a total area of 344 sq km. Vashi and Airoli Bridges connect Navi-Mumbai to Mumbai.

The fourteen nodes of Navi-Mumbai are Airoli, Ghansoli, Kopar Khairane, Vashi, Sanpada, Nerul, CBD Belapur, Kharghar, Kalamboli, Jui Kamothe, New Panvel, Ulwe, Pushpak and Dronagiri. Vashi and Nerul are the most developed nodes, known respectively as ‘the king’ and ‘the queen’ of Navi-Mumbai.

Today, Navi-Mumbai is home to the Millennium Business Park, International IT Hardware Park, Airoli Knowledge Park and ITC Park. Navi-Mumbai is also a major BPO city in India. It  also has a Special Economic Zone (SEZ) in its heart, which is expected to bring major economical and developmental changes in the city.

Situated amidst the Sahyadri mountain ranges, South Konkan coastline and the Thane creek, Navi-Mumbai is a place of natural splendour as well.  The close vicinity of Navi-Mumbai to Mumbai makes it a favourite destination of nature lovers and trekkers.

  • 5.0/7
  • Posted 2 weeks ago
Navi Mumbai is a nice place. Cool and calm away from urban hectic. One gets relaxed and enjoys the beauty of nature. There are some hills in new Mumbai but recently the entry is closed. There are tall buildings also. There are some eateries too.

The area was good and all those shops at Vashi were also good. Sector wise residential area was divided and even orbit mall is close to station. Overall was a good place. It was enjoyable too and will prefer visiting again with family and friends. Ways to travelling include buses, bikes, cars, trucks, auto's etc.

"Nabi Mumbai is a good destination"

  • 7.0/7
  • Posted 2 months ago
Mumbai is one of the best city in India. Many actors of India reside in Mumbai like Salman Khan, Aamir Khan, Shahrukh khan etc. The memorable place of Mumbai are gateway of India, water park, Taj hotel, hanging garden, so many place are there. Mumbai is a excellent city to travel. Navi Mumbai is a good destination, all offices are located in Navi Mumbai, if you want to enjoy personal holidays when on official duty, hotel golden tulip is a best location, you can complete office work on one side and personal holidays on other side.

"Best place for tourists"

  • 6.0/7
  • Posted 2 months ago
Best sub urban place, for family stay for tourists and leisure plans. Plenty of places to see. Convenient trains and budget hotels makes it a hot destination. We stayed at hotel sea-rock, in sector 15. It's nice and clean, with nearby restaurants. It's close to corporation office, with bus and train services. Evenings. We get nice sea breeze, quality street food & night life. We enjoyed it & recommend this place.

"Good experience-Navi Mumbai"

  • 4.5/7
  • Posted 2 months ago
It was a really good trip. It is a good destination to visit with friends or family. It has many sightseeing spots like temples, churches or monuments. Night life of navi mumbai is also decent. The city is safe and weather is moderate neither too cold nor too hot. One should definitely visit once in their lifetime.

I visited Mumbai to my uncle's house. It is actually a awesome place & I always like visiting. This place always attracts my attention because of its amazing lifestyle, Places & food. I also like going there as most of my relatives stay there & I like to meet them after a long time. It is a city of dreams. Mumbai is full of must visit places like Juhu Beach, Gateway of Mumbai & Lots More. The city in itself have in its culture of fast moving. I always like going there. Our way to mumbai was also very good, 4 Hours travelling & we reach there. In between we stopped at dhabas for refreshments.
