Located at around 87 km from the state capital city Mumbai, Palghar is an important city and the municipal council in the district of Thane in the state of Maharashtra. It is a busy town and is well connected with the important towns and cities of the state either by road or by railway.

Palghar is considered as an industrial township and there are quite a few small scale industries located here. Pharmaceutical, plastics, textile, notebook and small scale engineering industries are based all around the town. There is also a bit of agricultural dependence with a section of the population depending on growing a variety of fruits like chickoo, coconuts, etc and rice cultivation.

There are many beautiful places to see in and around Palghar which draw in regular tourists. The Kelva dam with its beautiful garden constructed many years back is not only a source of irrigation, but also a nice place to visit.

There are also a number of picturesque lakes and some famous Hindu temples like the Ram Mandir and the Sheetala Devi Mandir which add to the beauty of the town.

Connectivity to the town is quite good as it is a part of the Mumbai Suburban Rail network. The town lies on the Mumbai-Ahmadabad rail route and is the next major junction after the town of Virar.

By road, it is connected by the National Highway 8 which connects Mumbai and Ahmedabad. Being so well connected, it is considered a good base point for tourists visiting the nearby tourist sites.
