Navi Mumbai

Navi Mumbai is a twin of Mumbai city, India. It was established in 1972, as a new planned city. It is the largest planned new city in the world, with a total area of 344 km² and 163 km² under the Navi Mumbai Municipal Corporation[1]. Navi Mumbai lies on the mainland on the eastern seaboard of the Thane Creek. The city limits stretch from Airoli near Thane in the north, to Uran in the south. The length of the city is almost the same as that of Mumbai. The Vashi and the Airoli bridges connect Navi Mumbai to Mumbai. There is a new railway link from Vashi to Thane via Airoli, Ghansoli, and Kopar Khairane, and one between Panvel and Karjat.


The region was part of the kingdom of Ashoka and then various Hindu rulers of the Silhara dynasty until 1343, when it was annexed by the kingdom of Gujarat. In 1534, the Portuguese took the region from Bahadur Shah of Gujarat. It remained in their hands until 1661, when it was ceded as the dowry of Catherine de Braganza to Charles II of England. He, in turn, leased it to the British East India Company in 1668 for £10 per annum.

Planned city

The first post-independence development plan for Bombay, formulated by the Mayer-Modak Committee in 1948, suggested satellite towns to Mumbai (then Bombay).Ten years later in March 1958, the Study group on Greater Bombay set up under the chairmanship of Mr. S. G.Barve was set up. In February 1959 committee suggested the formation of a township on the mainland across the Thane Creek to decongest Bombay. One of its major recommendations was that a rail-cum-road bridge be built across the Thane Creek to connect peninsular Bombay with the mainland. The bridge accelerated development across the Creek, relieving pressure on the city's railways and roadways, and attracted industrial and residential concentrations eastward to the mainland.

Navi Mumbai spreads over parts of two districts of Maharashtra; Thane and Raigad. The region is hilly in some parts. Parts of the region are also protected wetlands. Unlike its bigger neighbour, the city is sparsely populated. Navi Mumbai is a part of South Konkan coast line. This coastal line joins Sahyadri mountain ranges in South and 50 to 100 m high hills in East. Thus the Navi Mumbai area lies between mountain ranges and a coast line. Its coordinates are between Latitude 19.5’ and 19.15’, Longitude 72.55’ and 73.5’


Along the east, there are small hills running in north-south direction. The lands forms part of Konkan Region. The narrow belt of land starts at Dighe in north and ends at Kalundre in south. It is 25.60 km² in area, 20 km long and about 2.0 km wide.


A view of Balaji Temple Rajagopuram, NerulN
avi Mumbai is a cosmopolitan city and people from religion live in an amicable situation together side by side. The best example the Brahmagiri where CIDCO had in a planned way allotted plots to religious activities atop a hill near the west side of the Nerul Railway Station. Balaji Temple, Swaminarayan Temple Complex, Amirtandamayi Temple Complex, Narayanaguru Temple complex and Little Flower Church. All these religious institutions are well patronised by people not only from Navi Mumbai but also from nearby Mumbai city also. Navi Mumbai is also home to 4 major Sikh temples.

Inside the SIES complex, Nerul which is sitauted vey close to Mumbai-Pune Highway, there is a Anjaneyar Temple, Kamakshi Amman Temple and a Adhisankarar Mandap.
