Chhatrapati Shivaji Terminus - Mumbai

Earlier known as the Victoria Terminus, This is one of the best examples of Victorian- Gothic art and architecture in India. This terminus is the main reason for Mumbai being the gothic city till today. The combination of European architecture with Indian art is the reason this station is very close to palatial designs found at many places in India. The domes, turrets, walls and the floor planning are all grand. The construction of this terminus started in 1878 and went on for around 10 years. The English architects worked hand-in-hand with Indian artisans and craftsmen to create which is till today a prized possession of Mumbai. The design is also somewhere inspired from Italian Medieval structures.
My friend dropped me at sion station & i got a ticket for CST from there. Mumbai local finally!! Its magic that one second you are standing outside looking at the crowd thinking if you will manage to get in & 20 seconds later you are so deep inside now that you can't find a way out. After 2-3 stops most of the crowd got out and i got place to stand at the door. Chhatrapati Shivaji Terminus is a UNESCO site. It is one of the best railway station in india.

Juhu Beach - Mumbai

This beach is one of the most popular as well one of the most post beaches of the country. You can find many celebrity houses and bungalows on the beachfront. This is also a favored location for movie shootings. This is not an ideal beach to swim as the place is very crowded. You can rather enjoy other activities here such as beach games, cricket matches, small picnics, horse and donkey rides, etc. The largest Koli community of Maharshtra stays in a place known as Versove which is at the northern end of the Juhu Beach.
Indulge in the variety of street snacks Mumbai is known for, and then make a pit stop at the beach to watch the calming waters.

One of the very first major attraction in the City is its famous water body -"The Juhu". For not only it connects to the very idea of a beach to the one who hasn't seen any beach before but also becomes the first major tourist spot on the list. "The Bombay Bhel & Juhu" are two terms which are taken in one breath to give the true meaning. Not so clean as a beach but still has a prominence is because of its global presence through the movies that have captured it since forever.

The iconic structure at Colaba “Gateway of India”, with the sea with a fleet of ferries, it’s beautiful. The roads are wide and nice, in the morning there isn’t much crowd. It’s a nice small stretch for a nice stroll to wake up J. I usually take a few rounds and just see the lovely view.

Colaba Causeway - Mumbai

This is a public marketplace in the heart of Mumbai City and is also one of the most entertaining places here. The Colaba market is filled with shopping malls, bars, clubs, shops, restaurants and roadside stalls. People come here for various purposes and you get a lot of things here including fashion garments and accessories, handicrafts, souvenirsw, showpieces and what not. From here at a very close distance you can visit the famous Elephanta Caves and Bandra. Being at such a nice location, this place can be reached by anybody without a problem at all.
As soon one steps out of Mondies, one is surrounded with a row of road stalls, selling everything (clothes, shoes, bags, books, jewelry, accessories). The street also has a few brand stores like Levis, United colours of Beneton, Nike, Adidas, Puma, etc. It’s a bit of an art to bargain, I have practiced it for years :P. Causeway always surprises me with the kind of stock that it is filled with. Good quality clothes and jewelry can be found at a reasonable rate. Again a favorite with the foreigners.

An entire lane of shopping, right outside Café Leopold that caters to every budget, style and taste. This stretch is very popular with the locals as well as the tourists. This place is termed as Mumbai's 'Culture Square'. You will find upmarket stores to shop from as well as small stalls where vendors keep calling out to you. It’s the place to pick up knick-knacks and hippy chic - with prices as low as your bargaining will take you.

Fake Antiques (or are those grand-dad clocks real?), Moroccan Lamps, Junk Jewelry, Old maps, Collectible Coins, Apparels, Watches, anything and everything you didn't know you needed but now you do! Yes, that's the lure of the wares at the Colaba Causeway. It demands your attention and more often than not, you give in to a bit of the hedonistic pleasures of shopping. In any case, a Rs.200/- John-Lennon styled shades is worth spending on any day.

UQ: 5 Samovar Cafe: Located in Bombay’s Art district Kala Ghoda, this 40 year old cafe has seen many restaurants in the neighborhood come and go. The cafe is inside Jehangir Art Gallery and overlooks the garden of Prince of Wales Museum. Cutting chai, bread pakodas, mutton samosas, and chilled beer for the tired soul, Samovar makes you feel at home and doesn’t burn a hole in your pocket. The place is a big hit with writers, musicians, artists, researchers and tourists. Samovar shuts at 7 pm and they are not open on Sundays. (I like places that respect Sundays).

Cafe Universal - Mumbai

Tucked away behind busy streets, it is vey easy to miss this wonderful hangout but you definitely should not. This place specialises in African and Ethiopean junk food and also some authentic Parsee dishes. Beer lovers find this place really comfortable after a busy day's work and you will find this cafe almost full all the time. The decor, ambience and service get full marks and the taste of the food get extra brownie points too.

Though I began this post by saying there’s so much to Bombay than just multiplexes and restaurants, I know it’s our favourite way of passing time. So for those hard core foodies and movie buffs, here’s my recommendation – head to Cafe Universal in Fort (On Sundays it’s open from 6pm onwards). Lonely Planet describes it as “a little bit of France near CST“. But this is better than France I can tell you. The food (try their burgers), high ceiling, wooden interiors, big windows and the warm lighting makes you feel right at home. It’s never noisy here. And they serve beer with peanuts. That’s something we all should value. They will never rush you. When you do get tired of all the drinking and eating and just sitting, you can finally proceed to Sterling Cinema. It’s about 5-10 minutes from Universal. There! You have your food + movie plan sorted. Cost: Depends on how much you eat and drink. Universal isn’t pricey. Hours Spent: Half a day. After the movie if you still have the energy and inclination to eat / drink more, then there’s yet another charming place that’s left to explore – Town House Cafe right next to Sterling will charm you with its music and menu. Great food. Great service. And prices that won’t burn a hole in your pocket. Town House Cafe has a coffee shop on the ground floor which I haven’t tried but can vouch for the pub upstairs. It’s my favourite in town.

Chowpatty Beach - Mumbai

Girgaon Chaupati ', commonly called Chaupati, is one of the best known public beaches adjoining Marine Drive in the Girgaon part of Mumbai.
Meandering through the city in scorching heat, wanting to make people think I am some intrepid traveller trying to discover Mumbai’s new side. People in Mumbai are really friendly and happy to help, as I asked around in search of a good place to eat. After lunch, one thing I was not willing to miss was a stroll on the beach. Kuldip, my driver aka a local Mumbai guide took me to Girgaum Chowpatty. He was also kind enough to show me a way to subway and other food joints just in case. Coming from a place where one seldom gets to witness fresh lakes, beachscapes are my idea of heaven. This place has one of the most popular beaches in the city adjoining Marine drive. It was quite a family place with children playing Frisbee and building sand castles. As for myself, I enjoyed the warm golden sand and water waves washing my feet every few minutes. This beach is also famous for water activities like, Para sailing, Jet skiing, cruise, speedboats etc.

Haji Ali Dargah - Mumbai

This is a mosque which was constructed in 1431 and is an extremely popular one on the city of Mumabi as well as the whole world. It is said that whoever comes and prays here whole heartedly gets the blessings of the lord no matter what caste and religion you belong to. The magical charm and peace of this place makes you come here again and again. There was once a very wealthy merchant named Sayeed pir haji Ali Shah Bukhari who left all his wealth and desires before he went on Haj from Bukhari in present day Uzbekistan. He is said to have travelled continuously till the middle of the 15th century when at last he settled in Mumbai. One day he saw a lady on the road sitting with an empty vessel and crying badly. On being asked by him, the lady replied that her husband will thrash her when she reaches home as she had dropped all the oil she had bought on the road. The peer asked her to take him to the spot where she had dropped the oil and then he just touched the mud and the oil came back to the vessel the lady was bolding. Later that night the peer had a dream in which lord appeared and told him that he was very angry with his deed. This is when the peer out of remorse fell ill and instructed his followers to carry his coffin till the Arabian Sea and on the way he died. Surprisingly after his coffin was floated, it came back and got stuck around the islets near the shore. This is where the haji Ali Dargah was constructed about 500 meters away from the Worli Coast. The Qawwalis or the religious songs sung here by Muslim artistes are soulful and magically refreshing.
1:40pm - Haji Ali Mosque: I can now finally see the magnanimous Haji Ali mosque. There are flocks of people walking all the way to the middle of this sea, carrying all the burdens and pains, with a hope to come back lighter.

Haji Ali is not just any other Islamic structure. One has to reach through a pavement which gets covered with water during night and clears during the day. One of the important places of worship it has such a presence that people of diverse religions come here in order to thank when their wishes are fulfilled. It is a prevailing notion here that one shouldn't talk to any of the beggars around and just walk straight towards the dargah, offer prayers and return. One feels immense elevation in spirit after they pay a visit here.

This is a road stretching along the seaside and is a favorite hangout place for the locales and also a place for morning and evening walks. It is in Bandra locality and thus is surrounded by a number of sea facing buildings and bungalows most of which belong to the high society people and celebriries. The view of the sea and the cool sea breeze automatically makes the environment romantic and refreshing here.
Great places to hang out, good restaurants. Next to the sea so offers great view.

Also presence of Beach in this area makes it more electrifying. Beach is beautiful but crowded. Many Eating outlets. But it is very costly and not worth also. Entry fee: NIL Recommended length of Visit: 1-2 hrs(Depends on your mood :) ) How to Reach: Just 2 kms from Bandstand; easily walkable. For Juhu take Auto. Beach is around 4 km from Carter road. If you going directly to Juhu then get down at Santacruz station and take Auto(Rs30) and then from Juhu go to Carter Road. Tips: Go in the Evening

Traveling to the past It is going to be a long day. My morning started with a mild headache but had to get up as I had to complete my packing, follow-up my visa, pick up a bag from market and do some minor chore before I leave. And yes, my travel agent have offered that she would send my passport to me instead I going 5 miles to collect it. I completed all my tasks and was waiting for a call from the travel agent office. I called her up and she said she will update me in 15 min. After waiting for many such 15 mins I called her up to confirm if my preparations are not in vain and I would get the passport well before time. She said she would deliver the passport mid way and could pick it up. I left my place towards bus station where the passport delivery boy was supposed to come and I would then catch a bus to Mumbai. Puneites have to travel 7-8 hrs more than the scheduled time to reach the Mumbai international Airport for any international trip. Aks had taken a day off to help me out and drop me to the bus station. On the way we went to telephone office to give international roaming a try on my phone. But these people need a post-paid phone to activate it and I had a prepaid one. Anyway, internet has made world easier and I could work without the phone. When we left this place, I called up the travel agent to confirm the place where I would get the passport and now she declares that she does not have anyone to deliver it, without even apologising for the delay. I needed it and not hers, hence had to go all the way to her office in another direction to pick it up. Thankfully Aks was with me and we went to the travel agent picked up the passport, went to bus station and I caught the Shivneri (AC bus run by state Govt.). It was 4:00 pm in my watch and my journey had begun. The bus took its usual root and I wanted to sleep. My fellow passenger wanted to have some casual talk and the lady with a child behind me didn't want me to recline my seat. And my head was screaming and shouting at me "SLEEP". Very obediently I neglected the surrounding and slept without wasting a minute till the time it took its usual halt at a food mall. MacDonalds have been a great savior wherever you go. I got down, picked up a burger had it and again slept. 90 min to go to reach Dadar, my dad is supposed to pick me up and I am supposed to call him 30 min before I reach. But, I slept again and got late to give him a call. This resulted in longer waiting time at Dadar bus stand. So we quickly reached his place, had some nice home cooked dinner which I had carried and I took a nap for a while. We should reach the airport by 12 am and hence we left his place at 11. So here I was, carrying a small hand bag, a sack with packed/ready to eat food and a laptop bag on my back at the freshly baked crisp terminal 2 of Chatrapati Shivaji International Airport. I was ready to travel 5 hours behind our time.. travelling to the past.. Travel and Travel Chatrapati Shivaji International Airport Terminal 2: I collected my boarding pass and as I was passing through Kenya I was also recommended to be vaccinated against polio which the airport authority had arranged for. After all regular formalities of immigration, security check etc. I went in the airport lobby. When I checked my gate pass to reach the gate, I was surprised to see Gate no. 73 on it. Did the new terminal 2 have so many gates?? Without wasting time I started walking towards it, I didn't know, how much time it would take. But then the moving escalators for walking made it easy and quick. The corridors glittered with decorative lamps and the chairs were colourful and comfortable.I reached my gate and I had enough time to spend reading a book. "Lady, you are not a Man" (LYANAM==LAYMAN) by Apurva Purohit, accompanied me through-out my journey. The book is about woman for a LayMan (wink) and encouraging, especially for me as I was traveling alone. After I boarded the flight and receiving the usual meal which had a Indian taste I dozed off only to open my eyes in Nairobi, Kenya. I had a connecting flight to Ghana from there as most of my fellow passengers had. It was interesting to see how people of almost all races in the world come together at a location and all disperse in the world. The airport with nearly 10 gates was full of people, leaving only few chairs for people adding in. Going through the window panes of many duty free shops, I inquired for a transit visa which I took in my return journey. After all this I had 2 more hours and the airlines declared that the flight was an hour late. What am I going to do for 3 hours? I sat on this really uncomfortable chair and started reading the book. I also made some changes to the ppt I was supposed to present the other day and then again I dozed off but didn't forget to put a alarm on my mobile phone. After I got up I went through a confusing system of entering the gate no.8 where people from other flights were also awaiting their flight. They announced our flight name and asked us to board the bus which would take us to the plane. I got an aisle seat and the person besides me was reading something familiar. Although it is not meant to be good manners I peeped in and I found that the person was coming for the same meeting as I was. Small world!! I got introduced to him and then went back to my favorite task.. dozing off. After the flight of 5 and half hour the pilot instructed to tighten our seat belts as we were about to land at Kotoka International Airport,Accra, Ghana. Amidst the grey clouds our flight landed safely. As we entered the airport we went through the immigration part, clicking our pics, imprinting our fingerprints and moved towards the exit. Now me and David walked together to find a person holding name of the institution we were invited at. Sitting in a left handed driving vehicle we reached the hotel,we were staying at,in nearly 30min. Throughout the ride I felt that the driver was not following rules being used to the right handed driving in India. After we reached, true to the Ghanian claim of they being good hosts, the hotel staff was humble and very supportive. Although it was 2:00 pm in the Ghanian clock I was in the evening as per my biological clock. All this travel had confused me in terms of date and time. After eating some home made snacks I slept to wake up only tomorrow morning.

Powai Lake - Mumbai

This place earlier had just a few small Powai Houses around and this is the reason why this place wasw named Powai and the artificial lake that we see here now had been named the same. This place was at that time under the British Raj and used to be leased out for various purposes to officials ranked in higher positions of the company. After that this lake was created to solve some water and irrigation problems of the area as well as provide better infrastructure to the growing populations of the state. Presently, it is a tourist hotspot due to the wonderful sceneries and you will also find a number of plus hotels have come up here. two premiere educational institutions of India namely the Indian Institute of Technology Bombay and The National Institute of Industrial Engineering are situated on either sides of the lake which was once made depending on a tributary of the Mithi River.
Powai Lake is another very prominent site around which an entire area is based named Powai. One of the historical institutions i.e Indian Institute of Technology, Bombay (IIT B) rests within its domain. Whether on foot or through vehicles you get a glimpse of this place which seems serene and noisy at the same time as if in an oxymoron. Being in Mumbai, you ought to come across Powai Lake as a complimentary package.

Bayview Roof Top Restaurant - Mumbai

This is a popular rooftop cafe cum restaurant in the city of Mumbai. The main attraction here are the awesome views of the Arabian Sea. They do not have a parking of their own so pay and park is the only option. Then you see the building and go to the 4th floor where this restaurant is. It is a simple non AC restaurant yet a favorite of many due to the very comfortable atmosphere and friendly staff. They do have a shamiana for rain protection on top and the food is all star absolutely. They serve vegetarian and non- vegetarian food and alcohol too.
UQ: 4 For those who want the same view as the Taj at one twentieth the cost, this open air restaurant perched on the rooftop of Strand Hotel is a good no-frills option. With a spectacular view of the Gateway of India against the backdrop of flickering lights and the fishing boats in the Arabian sea, it’s probably the only roof top restaurant in Bombay that doesn’t cost a bomb, is absolutely laid back and in-tune with Bombay’s chilled out attitude. It amazes me that in spite of Bombay being a coastal city, there are barely any restaurants that allow you to enjoy the sea-breeze. When compared to the likes of Aer and Dome located on the roof tops of snazzy 5 stars hotels, Bayview wins hand down for its simplicity, practicality and affordability.

Cafe Mondegar - Mumbai

Located near the Colaba Causeway in Mumbai, the Café Mondegar is an absolute urba café. They serve mostly oriental and continental food and the ambience is a hit among everyone. The décor is awesome with all the walls filled richly with Mario paintings and cute cartoons on top of the Mario Cartoons. Lunch time is best to go as the dinner hours are jampacked. They offer free wifi during the day and the service is also good. It is therefore a perfect place for both alcohol and non- alcohol lovers.
Why Cafe Mondegar falls in a list where I am describing Mumbai more as a cultural hub? The reason is with the trending and emerging cafe culture in modern cities, Cafe Mondegar carries a legacy. It is not just a cafe, it's a living history serving people since pre-partition days. It is the very place which started the culture of recreation and rejuvenation over a mug of beer. You don't get a table here, for it is hugely crowded and has a long waiting. But every moment is worthwhile when you step into a youthful vibrant environment. Cafe Mondegar also offers its merchandise which is a must buy both as a souvenir and as a gesture for the love it is going to offer.

Prince of Wales Museum - Mumbai

Also known as the Chhatrapati Shivaji Mahraj Vastu Sangrahanalaya, this museum was named after Prince George V when he visited India in 1905. The foundation stone was laid down by the prince himself however the inaugration was done in 1923 by Lady Lloyd, the wife of the then governor George Lloyd. The museum is built in Indo- Saracenic style with blue and yellow stones and has a very simple design. As you enter the museum you will find a large central hall from where leads staircases on two sides that takes you to the galleries branching out on both sides in the next two floors. There are a variety of art exhibits housed in here. These include Indian mixed art forms and decorative art pieces. You will also see Nepalese and Tibetian art forms besides European paintings and garments and armory displays. The artworks of the Pahari School of Art and Deccan School of Art are also very beautiful.
The Prince of Wales Museum was build by eminent citizens of Mumbai in the 1900’s to commemorate the visit of the Prince of Wales. Much later it was renamed Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj Vastu Sangrahalaya. It has been awarded as a Grade I Heritage site by the Government of India. The museum architecture is built in an Indo-Saracenic style favored during the Victorian era of British history. It houses over 50,000 articles of Art, Ancient Civilization and Natural History. The Prince of Wales museum is centrally located in South Mumbai. The museum is a neighbour to the Jehangir Art Gallery and when both visits are combined it makes for an art lovers haven. George Wittet designed this beautiful indo-sarcenic structure. He is the same gentleman who designed the Gateway of India. Most of the art and artifacts housed inside the museum are personal collections of famous Indian industrialists Sir Ratan Dadabhoy Tata and Sir Dorabji Tata. They have an audio guide facility at the Prince of Wales museum which is optional for locals and included in an international visitor pass. The audio guide is a self handled user friendly device and is extremely informative. In my second visit, I availed the audio guide facility. Comparing both my visits, I very strongly recommend every visitor to avail their audio guide facility while navigating through the museum. Without an audio guide, viewing these pieces of art will get very boring and monotonous. You might probably skim through the area or give up viewing the sculptures and artifacts as a whole in the absence of sufficient information.

This is Mumbai's one of the most popular art galleries located in the Kala Ghoda area. It was built in 1952 and contributed to the city by Cawasji Jehangir and is till now managed by the Bombay Art Society. This is also the most prestigious venue for modern artistes of the city and there is always a rush for them to exhibit their paintings here. Many have to wait for at least a few years to get a turn as well. The main reason is that this gallery is most of the time in the media eye for good reasons. There are four exhibition halls to exhibit artwork here.
On weekends, you can see many artists crawling on the streets to capture the beauty of ancient Gothic architecture of South Mumbai which makes us feel more artistic. Jehangir Art Gallery to local artists open air galleries – which reflect various colors of Mumbai.

Sassoon Docks - Mumbai

This is one of the oldest docks of Mumbai and one of the very few that are still open for public. The dock is located just near the Cuffe Parade and presently also one of the largest fish markets in the city. This was built in 1875 on a reclaimed piece of land by David sassoon & Co. and was owned and managed by Albert Abdullah David Sassoon. The nearby landmarks from here are the Mumbai Port Trust, Offices of the fishery department and the Oyster Rock which is an island off the Mumbai coast.
A trip to Bombay is not complete without a look at the city's original inhabitants - the Koli fisher folk. Take a taxi & head to the Sasoon Docks, as the morning catch comes in around 7am. You will witness colourful fishing boats that head back to land with their fresh catch. Watch huge blocks of ice crushed and loaded onto the boats; or observe large groups of colorfully dressed women and girls sitting around monumental piles of shrimp, removing the shells. Walk past a crazy, chaotic but fully energetic Fish market that will give you a sense of Mumbai’s traditional occupation and culture.

The Indian Navy Base is a hidden place for the civilians but in real is the only place worth visiting from where one gets the whole view of Mumbai through the naked eye. The only important thing is to manage an entry here, rest is a dream come true. Navy Base is not only a very integral place for nation as a whole, but for Mumbai it is a consolation prize. My visit here was not only limited to the external site seeing but I also got a chance to be on the ship INS VIRAAT and had an wholesome view of the city as if a painting on a canvas.

Marine Lines - Mumbai

One of the most happening places of Mumbai, this is where the locales and tourists come to enjoy the cool sea breeze during the evenings. Recently named as the Netaji Subhash Chandra Bose Road, this place is also given the name of Queen's Necklace due to the bright lights that are put on in a line after the sun sets. The Chhoupatty Beach is at the very end of the Marine Drive. This drive was set up in the the 1920- 1930's and is a very busy place with festivals all round the year. Starting from the Hindu Thread ceremonies, Nariyal Purnima and the Ganesh Chaturthi immersions all take place here. there are also stalls selling bhel puri, batata and sev puri, kulfi and paan around the beach area.
Marine Lines is a huge curve ending on Nariman Point. Here people are seen walking, talking and cosing around. You ought to get a chance to eat the raw mango and meet many acquaintances just having the time by themselves being in the crowd of the city yet away from it.

The English architects worked hand-in-hand with Indian artisans and craftsmen to create which is till today a prized possession of Mumbai.

It's good to get out and explore early as the city wakes. Choose the lifeline of Mumbai - the Indian Railways - for an early morning ride and head to South Mumbai. The ride will give you a local’s perspective on everyday commute. What lies at the end of this journey is a World Heritage Site – Victoria Terminus (Officially renamed Chhatrapati Shivaji Terminus (CST) in 1998). Located in the heart of Mumbai, VT is not only one of Asia’s busiest train stations but also a grand reminder of Victorian-Gothic style of Architecture in India.

Chhatrapati Shivaji Terminus Area - Mumbai

Earlier known as the Victoria Terminus, This is one of the best examples of Victorian- Gothic art and architecture in India. This terminus is the main reason for Mumbai being the gothic city till today. The combination of European architecture with Indian art is the reason this station is very close to palatial designs found at many places in India. The domes, turrets, walls and the floor planning are all grand. The construction of this terminus started in 1878 and went on for around 10 years. The English architects worked hand-in-hand with Indian artisans and craftsmen to create which is till today a prized possession of Mumbai. The design is also somewhere inspired from Italian Medieval structures.
See for Yourself, is the only suggestion I could give to you. UNESCO World Heritage Site. But contains the Railway museum inside. Formally known as Victoria Terminus (VT). Busy 365 of the Days of the Year. Stand before this Magnificent Structure and you'll fall in love with it. Come during Night., The light Shows are awesome. Let it be the different Festive seasons in Mumbai so'll be the Light Show of This Magnificent structure. Next to it is the BMC headquarters., even this is a beautiful structure. Note: Lights are switched off after 9 PM

Chhatrapati Shivaji Terminus (CST) is a UNESCO World Heritage site and a historic railway station in Mumbai, Maharashtra. It serves as the headquarters of the Central Railways. Designed by Frederick William Stevens with influences from Victorian Italianate Gothic Revival architecture and traditional Mughal buildings, the station was built in 1887 in the Bori Bunder area of Mumbai to commemorate the Golden Jubilee of Queen Victoria. The new railway station was built on the location of the Bori Bunder Station and is one of the busiest railway stations in India, serving as a terminal for both long-distance trains and commuter trains of the Mumbai Suburban Railway. The station's name was changed to its present one in March 1996 and it is now known simply as CST (or CSTM).
