The city of Dombivli lies approximately 49kms northeast of the economic
powerhouse of Mumbai's town area and around 17kms from the last suburb, in Thane district on the Main Central Railway line.
Well known as a cultural hub and one of the most literate cities in India, Dombivli is one of the most modern urban centres
in Mumbai Metropolitan Region - its history dating back to the 19th century.
City Orientation :
The city is divided into two parts : Dombivli (West) and Dombivli
(East). The former is the residential part of the city cornering the Dombivli Creek. Kopar Road Railway Station linking the
Central Railway with Vasai Road ( Western Railway ) is located 5 mins from the main station. Dombivli (East) is the more developed
part of the city with broad roads, a more commercial outlook and the MIDC Industrial and MIDC Residential Areas. However,
the older part of the city is located in the Western side known as Juni Dombivli or Old Dombivli.
Erstwhile, a town of just a few hundreds, Dombivli has grown into
a mega-suburb in demographic terms, rivalled only by Ulhasnagar and Thane in the near vicinity. A teeming multitude of cosmopolitan
culture has evolved in this city which knows no single liguistic groups - rather a Cultural Melting Pot. Religion too knows
no bounds, though Hinduism boasts a clear majority. Religious tolerance and perseverance is the reason why there have been
no communal-riots in this city though sister-city KALYAN has been plagued many a times by communal riots.
With a population of 7,00,000 individuals spread across just 15sq.kms, the
density of population of almost 47000/sqkm is overwhelming.
Still the urban conglomeration of Kalyan-Dombivli with a population of 1.20Million
ranks 21st in India in demographic terms.
