(Monday Markets) With a reputation of being one of the cheapest
 sources of consumer goods, this bazaar attracts  even the other suburbs' crowds. People come for shopping to Dombivli from as far as Titwala &  Vangani.
 
Khidkali Temple    Though this temple falls in TMC limits, just a few
                                 metres from 'Lodha Heaven', still the temple there is
                                 indeed  popular amongst us.
                                 To reach there catch any KDMC, NMMT or S.T. buses
                                 travelling towards Shil Phata. Alternatively, catch a 
                                 TMC bus from Thane Station.
 
U T S A V               :  The heart-throb of Dombivli's citizens, this
                                 shopping mela is held on the ground of Dombivli
                                 Gymkhana in the last week of December
                                 lasting upto 9 days before New Years' Eve. Lacs of
                                 people pay a visit to this shopping festival. 
                                 To get there :- either take a KDMC bus and get
                                 down at Asde Gaon bus stop(near gharda circle) ; 
                                 else take a rik ( max Rs.17/- from station-east ). 
 
BOAT  CRUISE      :   For many, this item is going to be an utter shock.
Yes, there exists a boat cruise on the Dombivli Creek from Reti Bunder in Dombivli West. The fare is Rs.10/- and the cruise carries on for 15-20 minutes. This operates in the evenings so you can enjoy the sunset and the ride.
 
SHRI MAYURESHWAR MANDIR : One of the latest temples in Dombivli, this temple exudes a feel of its own. For the spiritually inclined, this temple offers a good spectacle of serene and charming surroundings.
To get there, catch a autorick and ask for Nandivali. Just after crossing the Octroi Naka across the 'effluent nala' the temple is located at an approximate distance of 2 minutes. The rick should cost from Rs.11 to Rs.45 depending on where you catch it from.
