"Nice"

  • 6.0/7
  • Posted Dec 18, 2017
The Haji Ali Mosque or Dargah is one of the oldest landmarks in Mumbai as far as I can remember. You can go there only when the tide is low. During high tide the path gets submerged and it is inaccessible. Before entering just ask anybody around and they will guide you about the tide timmings. Its a nice walk to the Dargah although the road can have portholes due to the sea continuously eroding it. Once you enter the gate there is the marble courtyard with the Dargah. The tomb is covered with green and red coloured chaddar. Go a bit further up and just see the endless sea. Its wonderful. At times you may have beggars who will pester you for a few coins. After the visit you can have a bite at the famous Haji Ali Juice centre.

"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 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.
