Mumbadevi Temple

Mumbadevi Temple

Mumbadevi temple was built in honour of the Goddess Mumbai or goddess mumba devi, from whose name the word 'Mumbai' is derived. The original temple built by Koli fishermen was demolished around 1737 and a new temple was erected in its place at Bhuleshwar. The modern shrine contains an image of the Goddess Mumbadevi dressed in a robe with a silver crown, a nose ring and a golden necklace. To the left is a stone figure of Annapurna seated on a peacock. In front of the shrine is a tiger, the carrier of the Goddess. The Goddess personifies Mother Earth and is still worshipped by descendants of the dravidian population of western and southern India. Tuesday is the chief day of worship.
