Situated on a quiet hillock in suburban Bandra, Mount Mary
church is one of the most prominent church in Mumbai with exquisite
interiors. As the name suggests, it is dedicated to the Mother of Christ.
The Marathi speaking communities refer the Mother Mary as "Math Mauli".
There is another statue of Mary installed outside the Church. People who have genuine faith, lit wax candles before the statue and pray for the welfare of the family and their near and dear ones. Local people strongly believe that Mount Mary fulfills their genuine wishes if prayers are made earnestly and faithfully.
In September, the festival of the Virgin Mother culminates in a weeklong fair, popularly known as Bandra Fair, that has all the excitement of a small carnival. From the site of the church one gets breath-taking view of the Arabian-sea and enjoy the sunset.
Mumbai being the capital city is well connected by air, rail and road with all the important places within and beyond the state. The nearest station is Bandra (Western Railway). To reach the church tourists can take a taxi or go by the city buses.
Being a major metropolis of India, Mumbai offers tourist a wide range of accommodation that vary from posh five star hotels to tourist lodges and cottages. There are many budget hotels also available in the city at reasonable prices.
