Mumbai Darshan – Jivdani, Virar

2nd October 2012

Self, Gaurav started from Borivali by 8:14am Virar fast. Kaushik boarded same local from Mira Road. Reached Virar by 9am. Had good breakfast at Hotel Radha Krishna, which is very close to station. Took shared auto to go to Jivdani temple for Rs: 8/- each. 3 persons on back sit, 2 persons on either side of the driver. We kept our shoes at the temple trust shoe stand. There is ropeway on the right side of the parking lot. Started by stairs at 10-10.15am. At the start, on the left, there is Ganesh temple. The whole path is almost covered with shade. Stairs are all on the chest, so it’s taxing to climb using stairs. We reached the temple by 11am with 4-5 stops in between. Took darshan of Eakvira Mata. The Idol is very pretty, clam, cool, composed and not like fearsome goddess at least by the look  e.g. Idol of Saptashrungi Devi-Vani, Kali mata. Further few stairs, there are temples of MahaKali Devi, Baronda Devi and Kal-Bhairav.  One can see, very scenic view from the top. As usual like in all other religious places, taking photos are not allowed in the premise.

Started return journey, and reached in 40-45 minutes. Took special auto this time for Rs: 40/-, as not having patience to wait for 2 more persons in a very hot, humid temperature. Boarded local for Churchgate, which was very crowded, even though it was afternoon and a public holiday for 2nd October. As usual there was a fight in the compartment because of rush. Reached “safely” at Borivali 🙂
