It is also home to the very popular Hindi film industry and most Bollywood celebrities have residences here. The most famous spot here is probably the Chowpatty Beach, which remains packed throughout the year, especially during Ganesh Chaturthi, a festival which sees thousands of Mumbaikars get together to immerse an idol in the waters. The Siddhivinayak Temple of Mumbai is a famous place that is frequented by believers in large numbers on a daily basis. Lying along the salty waters of the Arabian Sea is the Juhu Beach, which is another popular beach in the city. The Essel World Amusement Park here is an ideal picnic spot to cool off in the hot summers of Mumbai. The city, being a metro, offers all kind of food from different parts of the world. The local pao bhaji and vada pao can be sampled at any local eatery. Popular restaurants here are LSD, Indigo, Cafe Churchill and Cafe Leopold.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

If you will drive for another 4 km you will reach the famous area mainly known due to the home to non other than BIG B ( Mr Amitabh Bachchan). 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.

Take a Rickshaw (Mumbai’s favourite three wheel public transport) from Dharavi to Juhu. On your way, drive past Bandra, the queen of suburbs and cover places like Bandra Reclamation, Carter Road Promenade, Juhu Tara Road (this stretch houses some of the high-end luxury boutiques and multi-designer stores that stock a mix of ethnic Indian Bridal Wear and Indo-western dresses) Juhu beach is the ‘Celebrity beach’ of Mumbai as it is quite common to find famous celebrities jogging along the sands or catch a glimpse of a Bollywood film shooting.

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.

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.

This structure built in Portland stone was built in the memory of the brave men who laid their lives during the time when the state of Maharashtra was being created. There are two martyr statues here who hold torches and the main structure is that of the beautiful Flora- The Roman Goddess of flowers. Around this monument are built many of the colonial buildings of the city and the base of this structure is still where you will find many offices and banks.

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.

Banganga Tank - Mumbai

The Banganga Tank is mythologically, culturally as well as religiously important to the City of Dreams- Mumbai. If you have missed the Ellora- Aurangabad Fstival then this is what can compensate your loss completely. It is said that Lord Rama on his way to Lanka stopped on the Malabar hills here along with his followers. They were all ardent followers of Lord shiva and said to have carved out a shivlinga out of sand here and called in 'Walluka Ishawar'. This linga is now known as the Wallukeshwar Shiva but the problem was that the hills were surrounded by seas on all sides and they could neither quench their thirst with the salty water nor could they do their daily worship. This is when Lord Rama shot one arrow (baan) and Goddess Ganga sent here waters here at the service of Lord Rama and thus the name Baanganga or Banganga. The tank was built here much later and the extraordinary designing of sand and wood here are remarkable. The cultural festival organized here by the MTDC in association with Indian Heritage Society started in 1992 and is still held every year. It is a blissful sight of the sun setting in the western skies and the musicians bid the sun farewll with their magical strokes of music and melody here.

Shree Thaker Bhojanalay - Mumbai

Located in the very crowded Kalbadevi Area of south Mumbai, it is probably the best Thali restaurant in the city. This is a hardcore vegetarian place but a favorite even of non- vegetarians. The rabdi, garlic chutney and the Gujrati Thali are a must try. The atmosphere is very calm and the service is very fast here.
Take a cab from Colaba and reach Shree Thaker Bhojanalay, Kalbadevi to dig in to some home-made ghee laden Gujarati food. En-route, enjoy the wonderful architecture of British Heritage buildings like the Rajabai Towers, Bombay University & Bombay High Court on your right. To your left, you can see the famous Oval Maidan. The essence of Mumbai lies in its cosmopolitan culture and that is resonated well in the variety of authentic cuisines available from all over India in one city. One needs real navigation skills in the tiny lanes of Kalbadevi to find this gem of a restaurant – but boy is it worth it! While you will obviously indulge in the food, the hospitality is what really engulfs you the moment the manager welcomes you with folded hands. You will be instantly reminded that you are in a country which prides itself in the mantra of ‘Atithi Devo Bhava’. One tends to go overboard here, so exercise some control as you’ve tasted just 5% of what Mumbai has to offer.

Mumbadevi Temple - Mumbai

And here you can find a temple in the midst of these lively streets – the Mumba Devi temple. The goddess after whom the ancient name of the city changed i.e. from Bombay to Mumbai. The name Mumbai is derived from the goddess, ‘Mumba’, the patron deity of the Kolis, the earliest inhabitants of the island. And yeah how can you forget the political pressure to change the name from Bombay to Mumbai as Bombay gives a British colonial taste as per our politicians. Politics apart whether it is Bombay or Mumbai, it doesn’t matter; because the very essence of this city lies within itself and this is none other than the people living in the city.

J J Flyover - Mumbai

JJ Flyovers is 2.5 kilometer long, opened in 2001, connects J.J. Hospital to CST Mumbai.
One of the most beautiful places in the city for me has always been the J.J Flyover. Luckily it has been an everyday part of my commute so I have wreathed a secret bond with this flyover. Strange as it may sound but all my taxi rides over the bridge have been the most amazing journeys of my travelling in the city. The flyover is surrounded by beautiful mosques in pure white and parrot green shades.

Babulnath - Mumbai

This is a temple in the heart of Mumbai and built on a height of about 1000 meters from sea level overlooking the mighty Arabian Sea. It is surprisingly peaceful and relaxing in the heart of such a busy city. This is an ancient temple and people from many years have been praising this temple. The presiding deity is Babulnatha, a name of Lord Shiva given by the locales long back. The temple origin story says there was once a pandurang with a cattle of sheep and cows who grazed in this very place and the supervisor's name was Babul. Babul one day informed that a cow named Kapila has stopped giving milk as she had found a suitable place where she could offer her milk. Pandurang first laughed but then became curious and started following Kapila. He saw that there was a Shivlinga naturally made in a place and that the cow Kapila was giving her milk there. This is the same place where the present temple fo babulnath was built about two centuries ago.
The Babulnath Temple was built around 200 years ago and is one of the largest temples in Mumbai. The temple makes the city proud due to its rich heritage & culture. It is situated in the heart of the city Mumbai at about 1000 feet above the sea level. Lord Babulnath is the other name of Lord Shiva. The entrance of the temple and the entrance steps have greek angles adorning the temple walls. Also, small low-class flower vendors and sweet sellers ahve their shops in the temple vicinity and their residence at the backside of the temple.

Mani Bhavan Gandhi Sanghralaya - Mumbai

The house of diamond merchant, who was also a supporter of the Indian National congress Revashankar Jhaveri is where gandhiji used to put up during his visits to Mumbai. This very house has been turned into the Mani Bhavan Museum. This place is just beside the August Kranti Maidan where the Quit India Movement of 1942 was launched. In this house museum you will find paintings, framed letters and documents that serve a look into the past. There are also 3D tableux of the events of the life of Mahatma Gandhi. The famous spinning wheel (Charkha) and the Charpoy is also present inside the museum. The books you will see here includes a lot of Tolstoys and Shakespeare which were read by the Father of the Nation. Well preserved copies of Mahatma's favorite 'Les Miserables' are also kept in the museum.
Here is where Mohandas Karamchand Gandhi resided between 1917 – 1934, whenever he was in Bombay (now Mumbai). Many of his historic movements like Non-corporation, Satyagraha, Swadeshi and Khadi movement have been initiated from here. The residence gets its name as the place originally belonged to the Mani family and later to Revashankar Jagjeevan Jhaveri, a friend and host of Gandhi in Bombay during the pre independence era. Mani Bhavan has also been a place of gathering for some key Indian leaders like Pandit Jawaharlal Nehru, Subash Chandra Bose and Khan Abdul Gaffar Khan. The exterior of Mani Bhavan has still been retained; And the moment you step feet in here, you are transferred into the past of India’s most important man. Pictures (mostly black and white) of Gandhi, Baa (his wife) and his friends & colleagues adorn the walls of this tucked away residence. Each level of the 2 storeyed house is beautifully designed to enlighten visitors on the life of Gandhi. On the ground level, there is a reception, some photographs of young Gandhi and a library which houses a plethora of books on law (Gandhi was a lawyer by profession), his biographies and the journey of Indian independence. Often readers and Gandhian followers make themselves comfortable in the library and drown themselves in gaining knowledge about his life and way of living. At the entrance, there is a Karl Marx stone presented to Mani Bhavan by U.S. President Barack Obama and first lady Michelle Obama on their visit in 2010.

Britania Restaurant - Mumbai

To enjoy Parsi and Iranian cuisine in Mumbai, this is absolutely the place you should visit. The old charm is still successfully maintained. You get complete personalized service as the owner himself takes order and also serves you. It seems all very sweet here though do not expect a contemporary decor or AC out here. The prawn/ chicken/ mutton berry pulao is a must try along with the sali boti, dhansuk and caramel custard. Overall, everything is good over here and the food tops the list of pluses.
So if you are in Fort and want to have something local yet tasteful then you must experience an Irani Café named Britania. Bombay boasts about its flavorful history with Irani food. Britani is famous for its Iranian Tea, Bun-maska and berry pulao

Byculla Zoo - Mumbai

earlier known as the Ranichi Bagh or the queen's garden after the British name Victoria Gardens is also called the Veermata Jijabai Bhonsle Udyaan. The name is kept after Jijabai, the mother of Shivaji Mahraj. This is one of the oldest parks and zoos of Mumbai and was opened to public in 1861. This park houses the Mumbai Zoo and is located in the Byculla region of Mumbai. The Dr. Bhau Daji Lad Museum is also a part of this park and is a good industrial museum of the city. This houses many rare and endangered specoies of animals and also stuffed animals created by expert taxidermists. The zoo has deteriorated in condition and needs a lot of renovation.
The Jijamata Udyan popularly, Ranichi Baug is a famous zoo in overcrowded Mumbai. Spread over 48 acres in Byculla, it is one of the oldest zoos in India dating back to 1861. Back then, it was called Victoria Gardens. If British wanted everything to be named after their queen, Mumbaikars today want everything named after Shivaji Maharaj – A Prominent Maratha Ruler. Here again, the zoo has been named after Shivaji’s mother – Jijabai. In the heart of the garden is a statue of Jijabai with her son Shivaji. The zoo although vast is in an unimpressive state. The animals are few and apathetically caged. Among the one’s present, you may enjoy viewing the Monkeys, Hippopotamus, Crocodiles, Deer and Hyena. The white Peacock is another extinct bird still in there. It has to be your very lucky day to spot a lion. But the best view is that of the Elephants. A large piece of land is dedicated to the elephants so they can move freely in an open space. Visitors either stand near the 4ft wall or comfortably sit and enjoy viewing these mammals. Another sight worth a mention is that of the flamingoes caged in the company of other birds. Together they make for a perfect definition of harmony. Just besides the zoo is the Bhau Daji Lad museum formerly, Victoria and Albert Museum. It has been recently refurbished and is a must visit for Art, History and to some extent Architecture lovers.

Haji Ali - 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.
1:20 pm - Sea-shore, Haji Ali: Another 15 minutes of walking has finally led me to Haji Ali. My legs are getting weary and the weather continues to remain harsh, but the cool moist breeze of this sacred air is one strong encouragement.

Mahalaxmi Race Course - Mumbai

This is an old racecourse in Central Mumbai just beside the Mahalaxmi Railway Station. This is the most beautiful racecourse of Maharashtra given the lush greenery and oval shape of it. The main activity that is carried on here is horse racing but the locales and visitors also have free access inside during mornings and evenings. This is also the reason for which this is an ideal place for walks and early morning workouts for people who like to exercise in the open early in the morning.
UQ: 4 Located at the Mahalaxmi Race Course, Gallops has the most picturesque view that the city can offer. The green vines on the walls, the white flowers in the lush green garden and the rule that makes it compulsory to switch off your mobile phone while the race is on (yup.. that’s right!!), are just some of the few things that sets the restaurant apart. The place isn’t as expensive as it looks, in fact it’s pretty reasonable when compared to some of the other restaurants located in the same area.

12:50pm - A Buddhist Temple, Worli: As I take Dr. Annie Besant Road, I see a Buddhist temple on the other side of this pretty broad lane. It seems a pretty old temple, along with its name painted in Japanese next to the entrance. It seems to me a place of immense peace, ironically on the side of one of the busiest roads in the city.

Sewri Flamingo Point - Mumbai

This place in Mumbai is known as the Sewri Jetty and the Mumbai Historical Society has now arranged for regular early morning bird- watching sessions for visitors here. The jetty is rough and walking till the end is a little difficult but the pink views of the flamingoes makes you forget everything else. This is also the place from where locales buy dry fish and thus you should expect this place to be smelly but then this much is bearable for the fantastic bird watching sessions. Winter is the best time to visit as flamingoes migrate till here mostlt during this time and watching them feed in flocks early in the morning will definitely make your day.
Nature lovers and those complaining about Mumbai’s congestion have something to rejoice! Sewri – a neighbourhood towards South Mumbai, has a jetty cum dock which is home to thousands of Flamingo’s from November to March. These pink feathered beauties are migratory birds that come from Siberia to the mud flats in Sewri via the Rann of Kutch in Gujarat. They are foraging for food during this period and the mucky location is conducive to them, all thanks to the surrounding mangroves. Each year flamingo’s visit the jetty tucked away in Sewri east, oddly in the company of oil refineries and industrial units. The scenery is a contrasting one with thousands of flamingo’s, mudflats and mangroves on a background of oil and petroleum factory silhouettes. India is home to two types of flamingo’s from a total of 6 recognized around the world – the Greater Flamingo and the Lesser Flamingo. Both types can be seen at the Sewri jetty during the migratory season. Along with flamingos, other birds like the Greater Spotted Eagle, Sandpiper, Heron and Black Bellied Tern are also seen in unison.

Kayani Restaurant is well known resturents in Marine Lines, Mumbai.
Skip your hotel breakfast and hit the streets of Mumbai. There is no better way to kick-start your day than visiting one of those quickly disappearing Irani cafes tucked away in corners of Mumbai which have still preserved their old world charm in their décor, food & service. In the lane opposite Metro cinema you’ll find the 104 year old Kayani & Co., where you can order small white cups of piping hot chai and Bun Maska. The checkered table cloths, menus displayed through glass tops and wooden chairs make the ambience just about perfect to enjoy the soft sweet bread dunked in the milky tea. Akuri with crunchy toast can be ordered next to keep you just about full till we get to our next meal. If you don’t mind adding a little sweetness to the meal & if you’re lucky to get it, the caramel custard is a must-try.

Sewri Fort - Mumbai

Mumbai was once once the center of islands during the 18th century after which the British people understood the importance of the trade routes here and shifted their business completely from Surat to Mumbai. Seven islands were also given as a part of the dowry when Charlotte of Braganza was married to Charles II of England. During this point of time the major enemies of the British were the Mughals and the Siddis. The Sewri fort just off the Mumbai Port was to defend enemy attacks and is not much of an architectural wonder. The fort was built on a hillock and had strong walls and gates. The main entrance was made of stones and could withstand any attacks. The only remarkable features inside are the pentagonal rooms and corridors and the vaults. It is now a conserved location and is under renovation.
During the 1700′s and the 1800′s era, the British constructed strategically located forts to protect their reign in Mumbai. Very few such forts remain in present times and hence I am determine to explore these forts before they are destroyed due to negligence and lack of maintenance from respective authorities. The Sewri fort was built around 1860 as a watch tower and was also used as a prison for a brief time. Today, the fort is owned by the Maharashtra state department of Archaeology and Museums and ironically (but not surprisingly) the fort is in a neglected and dilapidated state. The ruined monument overlooks the Sewri mudflats and hence serves as a good location to view migratory flamingos that visit these mudflats each year between November and March. Next to the fort, there is also a dargah (muslim place of worship).

Sion - Mumbai

Sion is the locality within the City limits of Mumbai. The Marathi term for Sion is Sheev meaning boundary or limit. In the 17th century the village formed the boundary between Mumbai and Salsette Island.
Next, we drove towards the Sion fort. This fort was a tad better compared to the non-existent maintenance of the Sewri fort. Yet, it can do a lot better in terms of maintenance. The area around Sion fort has been transformed into a garden mostly flocked by kids and adults for their morning and evening walks. The garden also serves as a study place for students due to its close proximity to some colleges in the vicinity. The Sion fort, again, may have been used as a watch tower during its time. The exterior walls of the fort although in a ruined state, look quite nice (or may be we were not difficult to please after the not-so-good Sewri fort visit). The inside of the fort had damaged and scribbled walls and carried a peculiar stench. A lone canon from that era is among the remnants at the fort. The view atop Sion fort is a typical panoramic city view with open playgrounds and mid rise buildings and skyscrapers on a canvas of blue sky. I would still question the safety at this fort for single travelers (especially women) and hence would recommend to stay away from the fort at dusk and after hours. Located near the Sion railway station, the fort is a landmark in itself that can be reached even on foot. They do not have any special parking space, so if you drive down with your car, you will have to park the vehicle along either side of the road at your own risk.

10:45am - St. Michael's Church, Mahim: I'm seeing one of the rarest sites. I'm crossing St. Michael's church, and right at the gate, there is a young Muslim boy giving out pamphlets to everyone going into the church. I have no idea what the pamphlet is all about, but though the sun is starting to grow hotter, I feel positively fresh after passing through this site.

Maharashtra Nature Park Society - Mumbai

Maharashtra Nature Park Society is also known as Mahim Nature Park, devloped by MMRDA. Located on Bandra-Sion Link Road.
It doesn’t take an expert to know, Mumbai is synonymous with congestion, noise and pollution. And yet in all this chaos, Mumbai has managed to nestle a Butterfly park, popularly known as Maharashtra Nature Park. WWF (India) – a wild life and nature conservation organization, conceived the concept for a nature park way back in 1970. More than two decades later, we have Maharashtra Nature Park. A nature park in Dharavi may seem quite ironical initially considering Dharavi is claimed to be Asia’s biggest slum. But all misconceptions are put to rest once you step into this tranquil place. The outset of your expedition is marked by a warning from the park employee to watch out for snakes while meandering. Take the employee’s word on this, as he is not exaggerating. But this should not deter you in any way from exploring this nature’s bliss. Birds chirping, butterflies hovering and more than 200 species of trees give you the impression of a fairytale. The deeper you venture into the forest, the farther you seem to move from the city chaos. There are trails that help you make your way inside the park. You can walk right uptill the end of the park which marks the beginning of the (shrinking) Mithi river. Early morning sunrise and evening sunset are the best time to be here. The location looks beautiful during the migratory bird season from October to March.

Hill Road - Mumbai

Hill Road is an arterial road in Bandra, It starts from the intersection of Bandra railway station road and Swami Vivekanand Road and goes west up to Mehboob Studio.
I preferred shopping here the most for street shopping. Bandra Hill Road has some of the trendiest collections at the lowest prices ever! You can get a lost with the multitude of stalls holding shoes, anarkalis, accessories, tops, jeans, kurtis, bags, and any other item a girl can think of. The shopping lasted about 3-4 hours. Make sure to come on down early to grab some of the best deals!

Bandra - Mumbai

This is a suburban Village which belonged to the British when the rest of Mumbai was with the Portuguese. The locales call it Vandre and the word Bandra is said to have originated from the Urdu/ Parsi word Bandar meaning a provibce or a city. It was once just a fishing village and now the development is so much here that many of the celebrity houses are found in this region. It is at present a posh locality of outer Mumbai. The graffiti on the walls is also a contribution of the British rule as the culture is completely western and was adapted during that time. Apart from many educational institutions and attractions, the St. Mary Church is the most visited place here.
UQ: 4.5 Gostana is a pet-friendly, burger / salad cafe that aims to turn fast food into a healthy meal. Yup, you read that right! The place serves a good range of veg / non-veg ‘health burgers’ in addition to soups, salads and the likes. Their wholesome burgers are made of whole wheat bread with baked / steamed patties served with salad on the side. What sets this place aside more than anything else is Apple – the friendly Labrador who often assumes the role of the CEO. She loves the company of fellow dogs and humans and is absolutely huggable! And oh, did I mention, they also serve healthy pet meals.

Sacred Heart Church - Mumbai

This is a church which is situated on the southern boulevard of Pondicherry and is a very old one. This was definitely built by the French colonials in the Gothic style of architecture. The maintenance of this building is worth admiring because till date when we stand in front of the church it seems to be built just a few months back. The red colour of the church makes it look very bright and it also can be seen from quite a distance. The Belgium glass detailing inside the church makes it look even more beautiful. The cleanliness over here is remarkable and the beautiful Sunday Masses are worth admiring.
8:00am - Sacred Heart Church, Santacruz: I'm about to leave Santacruz, and I see a people returning from the Sunday Mass. I've entered the Church Avenue, adjacent to the unending S.V.Road, to visit this beautiful Church, the entrance of which houses this cave, where in front of the Virgin Mary, desires are lit in the form of wax candles.

Silver Beach - Mumbai

This beautiful beach is a few kilometers north of the Mumbai city and is connected to the Juhu Beach in the arabian Sea. This beach is also connected to goa, Kerala and Lakshwadeep. This beach is close to the Santacruz area and is very different from its counterpart- The Juhu Beach. This is a much quieter place and ideal for people who want to stay away from the crowd and enjoy the beauty of nature. You will sometimes find people selling roasted peanutes or small toys. After you have taken a lot of photographs and enjoyed the blue waters of the Arabian Sea, you cab step into the Welcome Cafe on the beach itself and dig into their delicious food.
One of the safest beaches in Mumbai in terms of cleanliness. Its breath taking to watch the sunrise while the water plays with your feet.

Gillbert Hill (Gaondevi Mandir) - Mumbai

This is a volcanic mountain in the Andheri West area of Mumbai. It was formed many years ago from the deposition of moldten lava and is a basalt rock monolith struicture. It is in the danger of getting collapsed due to the unplanned erection of buildings here. The Gaondevi Temple is on top of this hill and is a climb from the base. Stairs lead to the beautiful temple made all in white and dedicated to Goddess Durga. There is also a garden along with the temple and the soft green grass here is perfect for sunny afternoons. The vies of the whole city in a complete panorama is ideal for some nice clicks too.
Gilbert Hill is as old as ‘The Age of the Reptiles’ dating 65 million years. It is made up of black basalt rock columns that were a result of molten lava that got squeezed from the Earth’s clefts. Gilbert Hill is often compared to the Devils Tower in Wyoming and the Devils Postpile National Monument in Eastern California. This also translates that these 3 monuments are the only one of a kind in the world. We tried to find the entrance to climb the hill and reach the Gaondevi Durgamata temple atop when we were informed by a local that the entrance is a separate route, altogether. So, we clicked a few camera shots and headed on our route to reach the entrance gate from where we could climb Gilbert hill. Climbing the steps to Gaondevi temple was a bit underwhelming, as we were expecting more steps to climb. Roads, although not in good shape, but are present leading you almost half way to the hill. This leaves you with very little steps to climb. Once atop, the view is amazing. The expanse of Mumbai suburbs can be seen in a 360 degree view. Buildings, clustered slums, green open grounds, clear blue sky and a sunrise or sunset view (depending on the time of your visit) is what you can expect, positively.

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.

Filmcity Complex - Mumbai

Also known as the Dadasaheb Phalke Chitranagari, This is a complex just near the Sanjay Gandhi National Park. This was made by the Mumbai Government to gove concessions to the film industry. This complex is filled with lakes, artificial waterfalls, recording rooms, gardens, theatres. This film city was made in the memory of India's first writer- producer- director Dadasaheb Phalke. He was also known as the Father of indian film Industry.
FilmCity located in Goregaon is the primary shooting location for most of the Indian television shows. Being a Bollywood junkie, I had to check this place out, but it's best to go along with a few people. It's essentially a forest, in which various TV studios and sets are placed throughout. We were lucky enough to catch the Comedy Nights With Kapil shooting!! You do need special invites to enter this area though.

British Brewing Company - Mumbai

This is a café cum brewery in the West Thane Area of Maharshtra. This is an old place and especially meant for people who love loud music, fun and boozing. Being a brewery itself, they serve the best brewed wines and beers here. The food is mostly Italian and Mexican with pizzas and nachos and pasta. The ambience gets full marks and the service too. The food is however just average.
The ambience, the food! When you are here, you have to order Bangers with mashed potatoes. I have a reputation of ordering it every time. The pizza here is thin-crusted and comes with a lovely garlic oil dip. And the Caesar Salad has refreshingly, crunchy lettuce... everytime!

Gorai - Mumbai

Gorai is a village in Dharavi Bhet,well known for its clean beaches and palm trees.
Gorai is that glimpse of the Arabian Sea which you need once in a while. And what a breathtaking glimpse it makes! It’s a short yet fulfilling stretch of almost 3kms of smooth sand and surf. The waters are calm enough to even take a swim but do consult a local first! Gorai is fringed with coconut trees and palms, with local life brewing at just round the corner. It is also a great spot if you are on your way to Essel World! May we suggest you drive down to the Uttan beach nearby or visit Asia’s largest meditation centre, the Pagoda, while you are at it! Gorai makes a great day trip with the luxuries of some cute guesthouses a walk away. Reach Gorai from Mumbai via the Bhayander road and you won’t complain for the rest of your day (or more).
