Trimbakeshwar is a place of pilgrimage situated in a village named ‘Trimbak’. It is said to have been created as a result of the impact created by the fall of river Godavari from Brahmagiri. Trimbakeshwar is considered the most prominent of the 12 Jyotirlingas of Lord Shiva. There are several legends associated with this place. The temple was originally built by Raja Balaji Baji Rao, who ruled Maharashtra. Later, many Maratha kings made further additions to the structure. Papaharini Theertam is located very close to the temple. Visitors can take a ‘holy bath’ here before visiting the temple.

DO YOU KNOW? Lord Shiva’s pinda is always wet. Nobody knows where the water comes from. Many people believe that it is Lord Varuna, the God of the Oceans, who continuously does the abhishek by providing water.

Muktidham temple:

The architecture of this temple, built from pure white ‘Makrana’ marble, is quite unconventional. A visit to the temple is equivalent to visiting as many as four holy centres or ‘dhams’. The temple is dedicated to Lord Krishna and its walls feature inscriptions from the life of Krishna and the 18 chapters of the Bhagawad Gita.


Shirdi is located around 270 kms from Mumbai. The town is known as the Land of Sai. A long time ago, in the early 18th century, a young bearded man ( Shirdi Sai Baba) with sparkling eyes took shelter in a mosque in the village of Shirdi. Nobody knew where the stranger had come from. He hardly spoke a word, but he was so generous that he would serve food to the poor and needy and then eat the leftovers. Sai Baba wanted to inculcate a sense of unity amongst the Hindus and Muslims. People never got to know his real identity. He would say that his religion was that of God. When asked where he had come from, he would reply, "I have come from the Atma (soul)". When questioned about his caste, he would say, "The caste of the Divine."


Sri Shaneshwara or Lord Shanidev, the presiding deity of the temple, is the personification of the planet Saturn. He is worshipped and revered by multitudes of people from across the world.

DO YOU KNOW? Leave alone locks, the houses in Shanishingnapur village have no doors! The crime rate is zero. Not a single complaint is lodged against theft, riots, murder or rape in the local Police station. Branches do not grow over the main idol in the temple. There used to be a neem tree near the Moolasthan, but whenever a branch came close to the idol of Lord Shani, it would break and fall. Some years ago, the tree itself fell and another fig tree now stands at the spot. The branches of even this tree do not extend in the direction of the idol.

Places in Mumbai

Gateway of India:

This famous structure was built to commemorate the 1911 visit of King George V and Queen Mary to India. It was completed in the year 1924. In the days of travel by sea, this monument would have been the first structure spotted from the ship, as it entered the city harbour. Opposite it is Mumbai’s landmark Taj Mahal Hotel.

Marine Drive:

This is another Mumbai landmark, which is also referred to as the ‘Queen's Necklace’. It offers an amazing view of the Arabian Sea. Amongst its attractions are the Girgaon beach (also known as Chowpatty) and the Taraporewala Aquarium.

Bandra – Worli sea link

The sealink is the newest addition to the list of Mumbai’s most popular tourist spots. It has cut down on the travelling time from Worli to Bandra (and vice versa) from 60 – 90 minutes to only 6-8 minutes.
