"Temple Visit"

  • 7.0/7
  • Posted Jun 30, 2016
This temple is dedicated to Lord Shiva. It is one of the oldest in Mumbai, In shravan month, there is lot of rush on Mondays. As fully covered Shivalinga with butter is made. There are steps to climb to reach temple. It is on main road. Easy to go by bus taxi etc.

"One of the most popular temples in Mumbai"

  • 6.0/7
  • Posted Apr 25, 2016
Babulnath temple is one of the most popular temples in Mumbai. It is mainly a lord shiva temple and as such there can be huge queues during shivratri etc. Barring these days, the temple is not very crowded. For elderly people and anyone who has difficulty climbing stairs, there are lifts. Parking might be a challenge around the area so I would recommend going by a taxi.

"Temple has great architecture"

  • 6.5/7
  • Posted Mar 30, 2016
I visited this temple with my cousin who lives in Mumbai during the day trip of Mumbai city. This temple is located on the hill which is mainly covered with the trees of babul and so the reason why this temple is also named as Babulnath Mandir. The temple is maintained neatly, the god present here is lord Shiva and there is no heavy crowd at the time of visit. Special puja will be conducted on Mondays and at Shivaratri time and this temple has great architecture. I mostly loved the nature around this temple which is with deep greenery and this temple is also very beautiful with the pigeons and local birds here in the temple, which take offerings of the devotees who visit this temple. I recommend everyone to visit this temple and have a pleasant and peace of mind away from the city traffic and pollution. Don't forget to offer grains to the birds here as to develop more birds population here as a human being in order to promote nature.

"Beautiful temple"

  • 6.0/7
  • Posted Mar 25, 2016
This temple is located just 9 km away from the Mumbai city and on a small hill which is full of babul trees on that hill. This is the temple of "Lord shiva" and those trees is the reason for which this temple is named after that tree only. As "Babulnath temple". To reach temple it takes 10min of walk. But lift facility is also available for the visitor at a charge of just 2/-. The temple is neatly maintained by the local people. The special time to visit this temple is on mondays, there will be heavy crowd. And this temple also has natural view like by having birds, much greenery around the temple. The visitors who visit this also offer grains and some other seeds to the birds present here. Overall, I had a great memorable experience here on visit.

"Holiest God Shiva temple surrounded by Babul Trees"

  • 6.0/7
  • Posted Mar 24, 2016
I visited this place with friends as on trip to Mumbai and when I reached this temple it looked very old "of like 17th century as it is not well-maintained". It is located on a small hill which is "full of Babul Trees" and so this temple is also named after the tree name as i. e, "Babulnath Mandir". It is the "holiest hindu temple of God Lord Shiva". The good time to "visit the temple is on Monday" as on that day "special aarti will be given" to the god. But at last when returning "don't forget to offer grains for Pigeons at temple"..
