Borivali was developed of what once used to be a congregate region of smaller towns namely; Eksar, Poisar, Vazira, Shimpoli, Mandpeshwar, Kanheri, Tulsi, Magathane and others, which were situated on and around Mount Poinsur, between the Dahisar River and Poisar River.
It is believed that the name “Borivali” comes from the existence of a lot of bushes of a sweet fruit called “Borr(Marathi)” meaning berries in English. Hence, named the town of berries literally ‘born-vali’. The existence of the ancient temple of Lord Ganesha “Shree Svayambhu Ganpati devalaya” in Vazira Naka area, meaning the ‘self-manifested ‘ or the ‘one that is created from its own accord’ in Hinduism and Our Lady of Immaculate Conception Church, at Mt. Poinsur, Christian church are the true examples of the mix of ethnicity and vibrant cultural mix of the population living here since ages.
The pre-historic era’s “Mandpeshwar” and “Kanheri caves” stand a testament to the rich history of this place. Borivali was spelled ‘Berewlee’ by the then ruled India under the British Raj Era. It is also spelled and pronounced as “Borivli”.
Borivali is lush green still even after being populated densely due to the presence of “The Sanjay Gandhi National Park” (SGNP), previously known as the “BORIVALI NATIONAL PARK” in the east and the lush mangroves in the west end of Borivali.
