Jogeshwari is 17th down railway station from Churchgate. It is the name of a suburb of Mumbai. Tambdi Jogeshwari is a name of a Hindu god and Jogeshwari is housed with the temple of this god.The Western Trunk Route of Bombay was extended from Bandra to Jogeshwari in 1915. Before 1945, Jogeshwari was administered by a Collector in charge of the "Suburban District". With the creation of Greater Bombay in 1945, the administration was merged with the rest of Bombay city.
It is mostly populated by Muslims and Maharashtrians. However Natwar Nagar- located next to Scenic Ismail Yusuf college in Jogeshwari (East) is a Hindu predominated area and one of the best places to stay in Jogeshwari.
Jogeshwari is Connected to the Central Line via the Jogeshwari-Vikhroli Link road or JVLR as it is popularly known.
The Jogeshwari caves are located in the eastern part of this suburb. They are some of the earliest Hindu caves in the region and are dedicated to the Hindu god Shiva. These caves are said to be older than the Elephanta Caves. The Jogeshwari caves are currently in a very poor condition as they are used for drying clothes and even as toilets by the surrounding slum population. Bat lovers will be amazed to see a huge colony of bats living in the caves.
