Agashi (Virar West)
 
Originally the village of the artisans.
Long back in history the Portuguese found this place to be there ideal hamlet for there ship-building. Artisans of all trades started settling in this region which was then referred as Agasi.
For more then two hundred years there trades flourished as the Portuguese reigned supreme in the north western coasts of India. After the Portuguese left Vasai and the Marathas took over there was hardly any means of livelihood for this artisans. Few took to farming but most migrated to other places like Mumbai and Goa.
Even today Agashi is known for its craftsmanship, then the trades were mostly carpentry and constructions today artisans have moved with times and Agashi is well known for industrial die-makers that cater not only industries inthe surrounding but to all over places India.
Agashi is another sleepy town of Vasai with small country houses dotting the main connecting road, small farms in the backdrop, the beautifully done St. James Church and the Mahadev temple by the small but well maintained pond provide the natives the right religious base. The place also prides the Phadke Wada of historical importance.
