Mira-Bhayandar is a city and municipal corporation located in Thane district of Maharashtra, India. Situated on the northern part of Salsette Island before the Vasai Creek, it shares a border with North Mumbai. The city falls under the administration of Mira-Bhayandar Municipal Corporation (MBMC) and is part of the Mumbai Metropolitan Region (MMR). With a population of 809,378 according to the 2011 Census, Mira-Bhayandar is a growing urban center.

The Mira-Bhayandar Municipal Council was established on 12 June 1985 by integrating village Gram Panchayats. The administration includes an administrative officer and a chief officer, with elections postponed due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Currently, MBMC is overseen by an administrator appointed by the State Government of Maharashtra.

Economic progress is led by the manufacturing sector. Bhayandar is divided by the Mumbai suburban rail line into East and West sections. Mira Road East is predominantly residential, offering a peaceful environment with low pollution. On the other side of the railway line, Mira Road West features salt pans and mangroves.

Once known for salt pans, Mira Road has transformed into a significant residential hub. Bhayandar West was traditionally residential, while the East had a focus on steel utensil manufacturing. Recent population growth and development have blurred the boundaries between Bhayandar and Mira Road.

Notable places to visit in Mira-Bhayandar include Vailankanni Church, Bhate Bunder Beach, Maxus Mall, and Juice Adventures. The city’s evolving landscape and varied attractions make it a dynamic and appealing urban area.
