about banganga tank

Legend has it that Lord Rama, on his way to Lanka, stopped on the hillock of Malabar Hill. His followers were worshippers of Shiva and fashioned a Shivalinga out of sand and called it the Walluka Ishawar. The area being surrounded by sea, they could not find any fresh water to quench their thirst or to perform their daily puja. So, Lord Rama shot a bana (arrow) and the holy Ganga sent forth its waters.

Banganga Tank in Mumbai today is a rectangular water body surrounded by steps on all its sides where diyas are lit in the evening, making for a mesmerising sight. January is a good time to come and see the tank if you are in Mumbai, as you can participate in the Banganga festival. With temples rising out of all four sides of this tank, the view here is simply breathtaking and has piety in its very aura. Come here for some quiet soul searching!
