Ram Mandir railway station is a railway station on the Western Line of the Mumbai Suburban Railway. The station is located in between Jogeshwari railway station and Goregaon railway station and is named after the century-old temple of Lord Ram in its vicinity. The station was opened to commuters on 22 December 2016.
The Ram Mandir Road station, the 37th station on the Western Line , was inaugurated on 22 Dec 2016, by Railway Minister Suresh Prabhu, after seemingly interminable stages of construction since 2008. Its first train, running from Churchgate to towards Borivli, arrived at 6 pm, while another bound for Churchgate pulled up at 6.10 pm.
The station got its name from a 150 year old temple of Lord Ram. The temple is located on sprawling grounds, in Goregaon West, and its weathered dome lends it a pleasant patina of age. A signboard inside the temple informs visitors that it was renovated in 1897, and residents say that a temple existed at the current location prior to that year. The idols -- of Lord Ram, Lakshman and Sita – inside the sanctum sanctorum of the smaller temple, were transferred to the renovated structure.
