Placed along the edges of Northern Mumbai, Manori houses all that your soul needs.
Amidst our buzzing routines in the city, we sometimes crave a day of solace at some deserted land and if you happen to live in Mumbai, this craving only gets amplified! Navigating all your wishes, we have found a 'Mini Goa' just on the peripheries of the city. Situated along the edges of Northern Mumbai, the village of Manori will ignite your spiritual senses besides providing a calming experience for your perplexed soul.
Beach, Churches, Pagodas, Temples, Sufi Dargah & much more!
Aggregating the best of different religions and cultures, the village offers plenty for all, harbouring a love for spirituality. While you will assuredly be avowed by a string of captivating churches, the Buddhist pagodas, temples and the Sufi dargahs will drive your experiences to a heavenly zenith. Amongst notable attractions of this place, the Samudreshwar Temple and Global Vipassana Pagoda will deliver you much-needed peace and tranquillity!
In addition to this, the spectacular landscape of the beach enveloped by cashew trees and abundant greenery, charms all the visitors. Amidst the bountiful offerings of this location, what accounts for the USP is its food. The sumptuous sea-food and barbeque served under starry skies at night will make you forget your times at high-end restaurants. Be it a thoughtful stroll, a cycling schedule with a mate or a long-needed picnic with your family, Manori serves a variety of purposes.
Know before you go-
Located at a distance of 19 km from Chhatrapati Shivaji Aiport in Mumbai, Manori is easily accessible via road. While public transport is available on this route, it is better to hire a private vehicle because the options for buses are very few. Alternatively, you can travel to the Borivali station and take a bus/auto on your way to Manori.
Given the warm and humid summers experienced by Mumbai, the autumn and winter months from October to March make for the best time for planning your itinerary. While a camera is definitely a necessity here, you also need to take along sufficient cash as there are no ATMs at or around the beach.
It is not often that we tumble over such a phenomenal fusion of nature's aesthetics and cultural antiques topped with a modern appeal! If a rendezvous with the roaring ocean waters is on your mind or your heart wishes to sink in sprawling stretches of sand, Manori is where you need to be. So stop wondering and plan a soulful getaway to this incredible spot, right away!
