Family Travel Ideas in Dombivli

Edit This

Family vacationers headed to Maharashtra should visit Dombivli, as there are many Dombivli family travel options on offer. Dombivli is a rather small town with a slightly rural landscape. It doesn’t offer the usual mix of shopping and luxury resorts. Being in Dombivli is all about safe, insightful and fun-filled discovery of Indian traditions.

Family visitors to Dombivli can undertake a host of activities that are safe-yet-enjoyable for the entire family, like:

Ganpati Mandir

This temple is regarded as the central landmark of Dombivli. Visitors need to walk a bit, towards Thakurli. The temple is visible from a distance due to its bright-red shade.

Khidkali Temple   

Visitors can hop aboard any of the local buses headed towards Shil Phata to reach this temple. The ride takes just about 30 minutes, and there are minimal stops along the way.

Swami Ramdas Muth

This is a very sacred temple for the residents of Dombivli. Visitors can find very cheap rides atop rickety rickshaws that ride along Nandivali Road.

Exploring Weekly Markets

Monday markets have become a tradition in India. Each regional, Monday bazaar seems to have its own typical aura and Dombivli’s weekly market is no different. A family can spend hours exploring the items created by local artists including many religious souvenirs.

Attending the Shopping Festival

This option is limited to families visiting Dombivli in December. This month witnesses Utsav—the most sought after shopping carnival in Dombivli. The festival stretches for nine days, leading to the New Year celebrations. Cheap bus rides are available to the festival’s venue.


Not many people know that boat cruises are arranged from the Dombivli Creek. These are short boat-rides, up to Reti Bunder in West Dombivli. The fares are a token amount and the cruise provides a splendid view of the surrounding landscape.
