Jogeshwari is a suburb located in the western part of Mumbai, Maharashtra, India. It is notable for its caves - 'Jogeshwari Caves', particularly one containing a shrine of the Hindu Goddess Jogeshwari, Lord Shiva and the deity Hanuman. It belongs to the K/E Ward of Mumbai.[1]

On the Mumbai Suburban Railway, (which is part of the Indian Western Railway line,) that runs from Churchgate to Virar, Jogeshwari is north of and next to Andheri and has a train station of the same name.

The Jogeshwari - Vikhroli Link Road connects Jogeshwari a western suburb of Mumbai with Vikhroli an eastern suburb. This road typically experiences traffic jams during peak hours but has improved access and connectivity between the city's suburbs.[2]
