A 1912 postcard of the Thakurdwar Temple in Bombay or Mumbai. Situated adjacent to Girgaon and diagonally behind Chowpatty is Thakurdwar. The Thakurdwar Temple was built by the Konkani community in the 19th century. The British Christian community, the Parsi community, and the Thakurwadi Hindu Marathi community reside around the Temple.

With their own places of worship specifically St Francis Church, Dadi Sheth Agyari, and two Ram Temples. Local residents regardless of their religious affinities take care of these places of worship regardless of their religious affinity. The Temple consists of the three eternal symbols of Hinduism Bramha (creator), Vishnu (the protector), and Shiva (the destroyer).
