Hi all
can you help me (again.... )
My daughter is doing a project on Mumbai (primary school) and we thought it would be nice to put 'Mumbai' also in Hindi characters on the cover.

Does anyone know how it is written?

Both are right, the later is more of the 'keyboard' version.

Surely it should be written in Marathi, the language of Maharashtra.

I landed on this page while searching for Mumbadevi Temple in Mumbai. Surprisingly the link you've given above gives out an error.

http://www.magicalmumbai.com/1263/mu...temple-mumbai/

Im doing an assignment for my son and had to include Mumbadevi temple. Infact I am even considering on taking my son to visit the temple as it is close to our house.
