“Good place to visit”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 20 September 2012

The dargah as always is very good however the authorities really need to do something about the entrance (especially after rains)...it becomes unbearable to walk.

“Nice quiet place to visit”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 12 September 2012

Have visited the Haji Ali Dargah only once in spite of staying in Mumbai for close to 20 years. Avoid fridays due to the Islamic day of Friday but all other days are quiet good. If you are looking to avoid rush then do it around 11 am and try to go when the tide is high because the walk to Dargah is quite bad during low tide as you can see lot of filth lying around.

“Needs intervention and help to maintain.”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 11 September 2012

Finally made the Hike to the Haji ali Mosque after years of admiring from a distance.

The surrounding is dirty. And when I say dirty, it is really very dirty. The water around the narrow bridge is full of filth. Didn't want a single drop of water on me being splashed by the waves hitting the bridge. The peddlers and beggars, I won't complain about much since it is part of any Religious site in India.

The entrance to the Mosque is beautiful. Female entrance to the shrine was crowded and the view is limited. There was a guard who was Eve teasing at the Female entrance, which was a big disappointment. Spare the religious place, if you cannot control yourself, don't work in a Mosque.

In all, Haji Ali has always intrigued me, after visiting it, I am not too sure anymore. Definitely some City Govt intervention and maintaining would help. Saddens me to see our Heritage being destroyed like this.
