Bhuleshwar an island of temples -Travelogue with Khaki Tours..

Bhuleshwar a word which excites women for it is a heaven for shopping but a absolute nightmare for the pedestrians.

You hear Bhuleshwar and the images that starts flashing is of a crowded chaotic lanes and narrow crammed by-lanes. It truly is a zig-zag maze where one can surely get lost.

When observed carefully we realise that there is a chaotic order in a disorder. . In this Heart of Mumbai,Bhuleshwar houses various bazaars and some 100 odd temples, some of them dating back centuries..

Amidst this chaotic world a serene world of material and spiritual worlds coexist beautifully.

As some one rightly said, Bhuleshwar the abode of 84 Crores Hindu deities is Gods own patch in Mumbai. Bhuleshwar derives its name from the 150-year-old Bhuleshwar Mahadev Mandir, where it is believed that a shiva linga appeared by itself. Bhuleshwar a place where resides the almighty Krishna in a form of Prince in his Palace and pampered by his devotees.
