History of Babulnath Temple, Mumbai, Maharashtra

The temple of majestic Babulnath is located in the very heart of Mumbai City, at nearly 1000 feet above sea level which is over looking the Arabian Sea which is dedicated to Lord Shiva. In a city like Mumbai, one would be surprised to feel peace and tranquility at Babulnath – a place where Almighty resides.

According to the Legend it is said that about two centuries ago, the southeast portion of the hilly terrain known as the Malabar Hill, where the deity Lord Babulnath’s ancient temple is situated, belonged to one Pandurang, a rich goldsmith.His cattle were grazing around. Being grazing land here, there was nothing to be taken care of by Babul, the caretaker of Pandurang’s cattle stock.

Then later once it was noticed that a cow named Kapila stopped giving milk. On enquiry, Babul reported that the very cow, before coming home reaches a point and suo-moto then puts out all her milk. Babul was not able to explain the logic behind this, but had made Pandurang inquisitive.

The very next day, Panduranga had seen the scene again and he was overwhelmed when the said cow, Kapila was repeating her usual act. On reaching there a huge Shivalinga was found. It is the very place where the temple has been built.
