So i am in Mumbai from last 3 years but never really explored it a lot. In 2018 i promised my self to explore mumbai and nearby places as much as i can and Pagoda was one on my list to explore first.
HOW TO REACH
Pagoda is situated in Gorai village, Borivali West just beside the Essel World. I most easy way to reach there is by going to Gorai Creek by taxi or your own vehicle and take a ferry from there. You can take your 2 wheeler vehicle on ferry if you want. Make sure to go as morning as possible because the line for ferry gets very long on weekends and sometime on normal days also. The ferry ride will be of approx 15min. Apart for ferry there is a road route also but that will take much more time. Will suggest everyone to take the Essel World ferry and walk from Essel World to Pagoda its a 5-10 min walk. If you take pagoda ferry and dont have your own vehicle taxi will charge you Rs.100 for 4 min ride. Shared taxi will cost you less if you are in a group. Pagoda timing is from 6.30am to 6.30pm
Its a very peaceful and spiritual experience in pagoda. You will not find much rush inside the pagoda and it will be a very peaceful environment. There is a small food counter also inside where you can eat for nominal price. There are regular meditation and other activities also going on in Pagoda. Meditation course very Sunday for which you have to register in advance. There is also a small park for family and kids. There is not much or its not very big like Akshardham Temple of Delhi but surely its a very peaceful and relaxing place far from the chaos of the city .
