Must visit religous places and things to do in Mumbai
Mumbai is an important city for many religions. It has shrines of almost all the religions in India, starting from the centuries-old Mumbadevi temple and stunning mosques to peaceful churches and glorious synagogues. The 'Mumbadevi Temple' is the most prominent temple in the city and it is related to the city eponymously. It is one of the most important religious places in Mumbai because the revered Goddess is believed to be the mother and caretaker of the city. However, the most famous temple is the 'Siddhivinayak Temple' which is one of the best religious places in Mumbai and its gates are wide open for people of any ethnicity and religion, making it one of the most revered religious places in the city. Another one among Mumbai's best religious places is the 'Haji Ali' mosque-cum-mausoleum sitting in the lap of the Arabian Sea. Being a major hub for the religion of Islam, it attracts thousands of devotees and tourists every day.
Among Mumbai's best religious places we also have 'Basilica of Our Lady of The Mount' or 'Mount Mary's Church'. It is a Roman Catholic Basilica and attracts a large number of tourists everyday because of the serene ambience and the views of the majestic Arabian Sea that it offers. If one is looking for a tour of religious places in Mumbai, let it start with a visit to the Siddhivinayak temple followed by the Haji Ali Dargah, Mount Mary's Church, Keneseth Eliyahoo synagogue, Cathedral of the Holy Name and so on until one ends up taking a ferry ride to the Elephanta caves for the worship of the Hindu and Buddhist statues there. The Holy shrine of 'Keneseth Eliyahoo Synagogue' is among the most revered religious sites in Mumbai and has beautiful blue hues upholstered over the walls along with swirling pillars and dazzling stained glass windows.
