The Babulnath Temple is an ancient temple dedicated to Lord Shiva, in the form of a Babul tree (a type of acacia native to India). The temple was built in 1780, following the discovery of buried idols. It sits 1,000 feet above sea level. If you don't feel like climbing the hundreds of stairs to the top, you can pay a few rupees to take the lift instead.
The temple is busiest on Monday, which is an auspicious day for Lord Shiva. Devotees also flock there to celebrate the Shivratri festival.
Where: Babulnath Road, Malabar Hill, near Marine Drive, south Mumbai. Opposite the Bombay International School.
