Virar is the name of a railway station on the Mumbai suburban railway on the Western Railway railway line.
Virar is the last station on the Western Suburban local train route of Mumbai. It is around one and a half hours away by train from Churchgate the first station on the Western Railway Line.
The most significant landmark in Virar is the Jivdani temple located on the mountain ("Jivdani Doanger") visible from the railway station.
The goddess is worshipped for providing relief to the suffering and new life to the dying hence the name of the goddess - Jivdani. Many people of Vasai especially - Mangayle, Koli and Bhandhari treat Javdani as their family goddess. The devotees return the "Navas" or blessing/favor by sacrificing goats and chickens. They also offer gold ornaments.
Devotees believe that to return to have "Navas" granted they must climb the mountain and worship the goddess but not return the same way as they climbed the mountain.
