We went to the cow sanctuary with a fair amount of trepidation and must say we were extremely impressed at how well the cattle were looked after and the general cleanliness of the place

It seems that the religious foundation you run the sanctuary take very good care of their charge. Although our guide was less able to tell the fait of bull calves or older amimals.

It's a pity photography is banned on the site.

If you've got small children, they'll especially love Bombay Panjrapole.

It's also grown to have special religious significance for Hindus, who believe it's auspicious to feed cows.

We all heard about the cows – and a few other animals – being sacred in India. However, I was not expecting a cow shelter in the middle of such a huge metropolitan area. They keep cows, feed them and care for them. But they are kept in quite small stables, separated a bit like casts. You can buy grass to feed them.

Panjrapole is a area in South Mumbai having many specialty and is always crowded. One of the lanes in panjrapole is connected to madhav baug jain temple and a gaushala . Bhuleshwar is connected to it so it's always crowded.

Panjrapole is one of the streets in south Mumbai where there are some shops selling steel products, sarees, Lord statues, and much more. There is a gaushala at panjrapole and also a Jain temple which is very much known.

I read about Bombay Panjrapole in the Lonely Planet and made sure that it was on my list of to do when in Mumbai. My impression prior to the visit was that Bombay Panjrapole was a shelter for homeless cows and other animals in Mumbai. On the surface Bombay Panjrapole looked well run – all the animals look healthy and well fed. However, on closer inspection I noticed that all the cows here are the one bread and that there seemed to be a disproportionate number of calves. I am sure that Bombay Panjrapole started with good intentions however I feel that it has now become a breading centre for the cows as opposed to finding a place for those on the street. Perhaps they use the funds raised for other projects (it was a couple of Rs to buy food to feed the cows) I do not know, however overall I left the ‘shelter’ feeling saddened that I had witnessed an almost ‘puppy-farm’ like organisation. Also all the staff constantly harrassed us for tips everytime they spoke. If they offer to show you something or let you pat they also want tips, so beware!

I read the reviews and looked at the website before making a journey. I also spoke to the receptionist at my hostel who thought I was crazy to go to a cow sanctuary- they're literally everywhere in India, so it's not surprising she didn't get the attraction.

First off I took the train. I have a working phone so mapped the journey from Chembur and opted for a tuk tuk to complete the journey. When I arrived I was sure I was in the wrong place. A guy came out, but didn't speak English. He pointed me to a cow shed. I saw 3 beautiful cows but that was it. The building shown on the website wasn't there. The office building was all locked up despite my arrival being well within the stated opening times.

Honestly, it wasn't worth the hour and a half it took me to get there. Unless you're passing, give this one a miss.
