The Shri Walkeshwar Temple temple was established by the Gowd Saraswat Brahmin community in 1127. Legend has it that Lord Rama paused at that spot when heading to Sri Lanka to try and get his wife Sita back from demon Ravana, who kidnapped her. Unfortunately, the Portuguese destroyed the temple during their rein in Mumbai, in the 16th century. However, it was later rebuilt by another Gowd Saraswat Brahmin in 1715.
The historic Banganga Tank is part of the temple complex.
The Gowd Saraswat Brahmin community is also famous for having one of the richest Ganesh idols in Mumbai -- affectionately called the "gold Ganesh".
Where: Malabar Hill, south Mumbai.
