This area is home to many educational institutes, including the Tata Institute of Social Sciences, Homi Bhabha Centre for Science Education, International Institute for Population Sciences and many private colleges of engineering. The Bhabha Atomic Research Centre (BARC) is located in Trombay.
Three stations on the Harbour line of Bombay's suburban rail network serve this area: Chembur, Mankhurd, and Govandi. Arriving from South Mumbai, the best place to catch the train is at Bombay CST, which is the starting point for Harbour (as well as Central) lines. For virtually anywhere else on the Central line, Kurla is the interchange point. The harbour line goes all the way up to Navi Mumbai, so if you are arriving from there, catching a train from Vashi or any other station on that line will also work.
The Eastern Express Highway has many exits that you can take to reach this area.
The Chembur area has gardens like the Diamond garden (a.k.a. N G Acharya garden), Sandu garden and Ambedkar garden.
