About Navi Mumbai
Navi Mumbai, situated on the west coast of the Indian state of Maharashtra, was developed in 1972 as a twin city to Mumbai. Planned with the specific purpose of decongesting Mumbai and becoming an alternative haven for the multitudes that throng to Mumbai from all over India, Navi Mumbai takes credit for being the largest planned city in the world.
DY Patil Stadium in Nerul, which has hosted 3 IPL T-20 matches, is Navi Mumbai's own International Cricket Ground. The Sagar Vihar Garden by the creek, known for its rich flora, entices people of all ages with its exquisite beauty. The planned construction of the Balaji, Swaminarayan, Amirtandamayi and Narayanguru temples; the Little Flower Church, the Epsworth Methodist Church and other major Sikh temples elucidates the thought process gone into the construction of this satellite town.
The Khargar and Parsik hills and the Pandavkada waterfalls in Khargar are some places of interest in the vicinity. The beautiful hill stations of Lonavla and Khandala are less than an hour's drive from Navi Mumbai.
