Arnala Beach

Buses from Virar railway station will bring you to Arnala a (short distance of 25 mins). From the Arnala market you will have to traverse through the small fishing village of Arnala to reach the sea shores. From here its only the small trawlers that can carry you to the Fort Island.

Arnala Fort is located approximately 8 miles North of Vasai. It is built on a small island off the Arnala port. Since the fort is built on an island and surrounded on all sides by water it is also known as “Jaldurg” or “Janjire Arnala” Portuguese called the island “Ilha das vocas”. Before the Portuguese control of the island, the island was controlled by the Muslim rulers of Gujarat.

The island is near the mouth of Vaitarna river and the Portuguese used it to observe and control shipping and navigation along the western coast. The Portuguese captain of Bassein donated the island to a Portuguese nobleman. The nobleman tore down the old fort and began construction of 700 foot by 700 foot fort. The fort was never completed by the nobleman but remained under Portuguese control.

 

 

Jivdani Temple

The most significant landmark in Virar is the Jivdani temple located on the mountain (“Jivdani Doanger”) visible from the railway station.

Many people of Vasai especially – Mangayle, Koli and Bhandhari treat Javdani as their family goddess. The devotees return the “Navas” or blessing/favor by sacrificing goats and chickens. They also offer gold ornaments.

Devotees believe that to return to have “Navas” granted they must climb the mountain and worship the goddess but not return the same way as they climbed the mountain.
