Varālā Devi, Bhiwandi (Thane)

Location: ~50 kms from Mumbai (map)

Timings: All day

Kṣhetra Purāṇam: This is a Gramadevata temple. Once upon a time there was a great devotee of Goddess Durga. She once saved the locality by sacrificing her own life and the baby inside her womb. She performed a jala-samādhi in a pond near by, which is now called the Varālādevi Talao. It is her idol (Varālā Devi), along with Goddess Durga, which is worshiped in this place. Darshan of Varālā Devi is enough to get blessed with sat-santānam.
