about vajreshwari temple

In 1739, Maratha warrior Chimaji Appa attacked Vasai Fort, which belonged to the Portuguese. Before he set out to fight the powerful Europeans, he prayed to Goddess Vajreshwari on the way, and in return for a successful belting of the Christians, he promised to build a grand temple in her honour. After his effective conquest, he fulfilled his promise. The temple is reached after a steep climb, and at its doors, there are huge boards that proudly advertise the conquest by Chimaji Appa. A small climb from the temple leads to a point from where there is a good view of distant hills.
