Sahar Village lies in the Vile Parle East suburb of Mumbai. It is among the oldest settlements of East Indians on Salsette Island. The village had a station on the Salsette–Trombay Railway that was dismantled after the rail line closed in 1934.[2]

The opening of the Sahar International Terminal (Terminal 2) of the Chhatrapati Shivaji International Airport in the 1980s led to subsequent urban development in the area.[3] This includes the opening of the first hotel of The Leela Group in 1988.[4] Its nearby areas are Vile Parle, Marol, JB Nagar, Chakala and Saki Naka.
