Off Ghodbunder Road

Mitha Bol (Linguistic map of Mumbai): Malayalam 

In a slum off Ghodbandar Road in Thane is a temple built by people of Kerala origin. It is dedicated to Bhadrakali of Kodungalur (Cranganore) near Kochi, Kerala.  These are pictures from the temple during a ceremony called Vidyarambham or the beginning of education.

After this ceremony, the children can commence formal education.

Snake stones

The temple also seems to a congregation zone for older women in the community who come here to read holy books and sing devotional songs. Here is a group of women.
