Tagged as the ‘Prince of Suburbs’, Mulund has a reputation that is unmatched by other suburbs of Mumbai. Located nearly 32km away from Mumbai in the north-east direction, this suburb has a rich history with records that dates back to the period of the Mauryan Empire. Muchchalind was the name given to this area in those ancient times.
Mulund was one of the earliest Mumbai suburbs to have been planned from scratch. Even today, the streets of Mulund look neat and orderly. As is the case with most of the suburbs surrounding Mumbai, Mulund East is separated from Mulund West with the help of a railway line that cuts right through both of them. Towards one side, Mulund West is bathed in the beauty of nature, and is made of the hills that form the eastern boundary of the Sanjay Gandhi National Park.
Mulund West is a fully developed region and one of the few suburbs to boast of a night-life. The facilities required by a modern, cosmopolitan population are available in abundance.
