Pydhuni




Pydhuni is a thickly populated area located east of Kalbadevi in south Mumbai. Pydhuni is about 4 km south-east of Khetwadi.

Pydhuni literally means Ďfoot-washí, a name that probably referred to the small creek that formed at high tide between the then Great Breach (separating the islands of Bombay and Worli) and Umarkhadi, the creek which once existed between Mazagaon and Bombay.

Mumbadevi Temple and Pydhuni Teerth are the major landmarks.

Masjid Railway Station is the nearest stop on the suburban line.

Chhatrapati Shivaji International Airport is 22 km north. Chhatrapati Shivaji Terminus Railway Station is around 4 km south.
