Marol is a locality in the suburb of the Andheri (East) in Mumbai, India.


The area has been inhabited for centuries,[1] successively coming under both Portuguese and British rule.


Marol consists of the areas Marol village, Marol Naka, Marol Pipeline, Marol Depot, Marol Maroshi Bus Station, Military Road, Bhavani Nagar, Vijay Nagar, Marol Police Camp, parts of JB Nagar, and parts of Marol MIDC. It is near to the international airport. The Marol-Maroshi Road stretches from Marol Naka up to Maroshi Naka (in Aarey colony), beyond which is the Picnic Spot. Marol Mapkhan Nagar and the Marol Church Road are the two diversions, the latter one also leads to Marol Pipeline.

Marol Village is home to a large number of Christians, with the St. John the Evangelist Church which has been established since 1579 [2] and its high school.[3]

Police Camp is at the end of Marol and is home to the families of people working for the Maharashtra Police. It is mainly the base camp for the State Armed Constabulary. It also has a Police Training Centre where police recruitment is held, and newly recruited officers receive their training.

The oldest housing colony in the area is a group of 11 buildings on Military Road called Blossom Society.[4] The first occupants arrived here in 1968.
