Next/Second station from Virar towards Churchgate, Nalasopara location comes under Vasai Virar Conurbation, Mumbai North governed by Vasai Virar Municipal Corporation, Nala Sopara as it is also called is a far suburb area in North of city in Palghar district..”
This location is one of the very crowded with migrants from other part of cities, major lower and middle class crowd, of which many benefited from SRA projects (slum redevelopment). One of the major reasons of Nalasopara being so crowded is the property and rental cost which is low compared to Virar and Vasai and other parts of city.
Home being a major need, people who cannot effort high standard of living in city migrates to Nalasopara area major. Need to face few problems and challanges like crowded local trains, 8 to 10 Km distance from National highway as alternate road travel options, limited number of entertainment options, limited resource and civic amenities like Water and Electricity outage, this location is still backward, But developing at faster pace.
It was one of the famous old locations and prominent Buddhist area few decades before. Some years back during a recent redevelopment and digging activity authorities found a very old Buddhist idol. The famous Stupa location inside village is an historic and heritage graded place to be visited atleast once, although nothing but remains of history is what is found now.

Attractions and Entertainment
As said their are not much of entertainment options and special attractions in Nalasopara. Two famous beaches are one of the major attractions, which are Rajori and Kalamb Beach with connecting famous Arnala beach, Another entertainment option being Fun Fiesta Theater in west.
Village location inside is a must see if you love greenery. Wide open fields, lush grennery, villages and gaontans, small big lakes (‘Talao’ in Hindi) and a pollution free fresh air is what one gains far from Hustle Bustle of city here in Nalasopara. See also Virar Vasai Tourism and Attractions for more attractions around this area.
Nalasopara can be categorized into affordable homes with major social and civic amenities gradually getting better. Still, problems like Electricity (Current outage) and limited water supply persist in few areas. Real estate development and cost are on rise due to redevelopments.
Another reasons being the Dahanu Mumbai local trains improved the connectivity to locations beyond Virar. An important thing to note is that West side locations, Roads, Townships are comparatively better than east area.
Caution need to be taken if planning for a property purchase as few interior locations at Nalasopara east which connects virar has many illegal residential, chawls and load bearing apartments. Many of such illegal developments are been razed recently and many in queue. So do not fall prey to cheap homes in Nalasopara Virar connecting locations like Kargil Nagar area etc which is far from railway station and cheaper.
Recently some locations near station location in east have seen a good development with local reputed builders development projects in process, well planned with all major facilities. Some of the famous residential locations are in West like Patankar Park, Sri Prastha Complex, Chanakya Nagar etc, after which Nalasopara Gaon starts which connects major 56 villages with Virar vasai location.
The hotspot and upcoming residential location is Nalasopara Virar link road in west with area like IDBI colony and others. In the East some of the famous locations and places are Raghukul Nagar, Taki Road, Tulinj Road, Vijay Nagar, Radha nagar and Achole road which also connects to Vasai location in east.
No big malls apart from regular Dmart in East and Sahakari Bhandar at Shri Prastha below Fun fiesta cinema is a good option. Regular vegetable and fruit markets are very much available near crowded station at both sides.
Nalasopara has ample number of Vegetarian and Non-vegetarian restaurants like Hotal Aaram in West, Hotel Manthan Restaurant and Bar which has party hall and overnight stay option, Shabri, Utsav, Food King Restaurant and Ana’s Thai China Chinese Cuisine etc. Street side fast food corners are obviously found at major lanes and junctions selling Refreshments like Tea/Coffee, Mewad ice creams, Chinese bhel and our Mumbai’s famous Vada Pav.
