The Sanjay Gandhi National Park lies on the north suburban fringes of Mumbai and is said to be the largest park located within city limits in the world. It’s sprawled across more than 100 square-kilometers and is one of Asia's most visited national parks, with two million visitors flooding through each and every year.
Set against a backdrop of undulating greenery, with panoramic views of the hills, lakes, and valleys, the Sanjay Gandhi National Park is the ideal retreat from the hustle and bustle of Mumbai city life. The park is home to a number of endangered species of both flora and fauna. Among its many residents are wild leopards and tigers, migratory birds, nearly 40 species of reptile, plus some unique and fascinating flora.
Other attractions within the park include the Kanheri Caves (monastic structures dating back to between the 1st century BC and 9th century AD), a famous Jain Temple, and two lakes (Tulsi and Vihar), which provide water to the city of Mumbai.
The entrance to the Sanjay Gandhi National Park is located on the eastern side of the suburb of Borivali, less than a kilometer from Borivali station. Trains leave from Mumbai Central station to Borivali every five minutes throughout the day.
