This is a temple in the heart of Mumbai and built on a height of about 1000 meters from sea level overlooking the mighty Arabian Sea. It is surprisingly peaceful and relaxing in the heart of such a busy city. This is an ancient temple and people from many years have been praising this temple. The presiding deity is Babulnatha, a name of Lord Shiva given by the locales long back. The temple origin story says there was once a pandurang with a cattle of sheep and cows who grazed in this very place and the supervisor's name was Babul. Babul one day informed that a cow named Kapila has stopped giving milk as she had found a suitable place where she could offer her milk. Pandurang first laughed but then became curious and started following Kapila. He saw that there was a Shivlinga naturally made in a place and that the cow Kapila was giving her milk there. This is the same place where the present temple fo babulnath was built about two centuries ago.

The Babulnath Temple was built around 200 years ago and is one of the largest temples in Mumbai. The temple makes the city proud due to its rich heritage & culture. It is situated in the heart of the city Mumbai at about 1000 feet above the sea level. Lord Babulnath is the other name of Lord Shiva. The entrance of the temple and the entrance steps have greek angles adorning the temple walls. Also, small low-class flower vendors and sweet sellers ahve their shops in the temple vicinity and their residence at the backside of the temple.
