Haji Ali Dargah

The Haji Ali Dargah is a Mosque and tomb built on a tiny island located 500mtrs from coast, in the middle of Worli Bay. The accessibility to the dargah is very much dependent on the tides. As, the causeway is not bound by railings, when the causeway gets submerged during high tides it becomes inaccessible. The walk on the causeway, with the sea on both sides, is one of the highlights of the trip to the shrine.
This was constructed in 1431 in memory of wealthy muslim merchant Sayyed Peer Haji Ali Shah Bukhari.. More about this place here.

  12. I'll be in Mumbai in October. I hope there is time to walk out to this site. The physical situation with a causeway reminds me of Mont. St. Michel in Brittany.
