Masjid Bunder

View-Masjid Bunder Market

Masjid (sometimes called Masjid Bunder) is a second down railway station towards north on the Central line of the Mumbai Suburban Railways. It was named after a synagogue, the 200-years old The Gate of Mercy Synagogue popularly known as Juni Masjid by locals.
The volume of passengers on this station is very high due to different wholesale markets around this station. These markets are referred as bazaars.
Stockists from Reay road iron market (lokhand bazaar) make trades of millions of rupees in the market near this station. The south end towards CST gives access to Yousuf Mehar Ali Road, Jama Masjid, Kalbadevi, Mahatma Phule(Crawford Market), Mandvi and surrounding area.

Masjid is prominent since it is close to the docks from where ships taking Indian pilgrims to the annual hajji(pilgrimage to Mecca) set sail.
