Description

Mumbai is a real life metropolis and a beacon that lures tourists into its spell. A place this big with so much going on can be intimidating even for the most experienced traveller, yet this tour helps smooth out some of the must-know practicalities so that one can navigate one's way around whilst learning the story of the city and what it's like to live here.

After we meet under the shadow of the magnificent Chhatrapati Shivaji Terminus, the trail gets to a great start as we pay visit to a specimen of Victorian Gothic architecture - a bustling railway station that is also a UNESCO World Heritage Site. A short local taxi ride through vintage Mumbai reveals beautiful Indo-Victorian buildings and monuments that is a throwback to an era of dapper English Sahibs and elegant Memsahibs. The impressive Gateway of India, a monument built for the King, stands in its full glory against the blue sea dotted with colorful fishing boats, yachts and an occasional cargo ship.

From the Gateway, a breezy ride through Mumbai's iconic Marine Drive takes us to the base of Hindu religious fervor. Built atop a hillock is the 200 year old Shiva temple, Babulnath. Devout Hindus can be seen carrying milk and water to pour over the Linga, the creative symbol that denotes Lord Shiva. Underlining the fact that India is a potpourri of religions, a short ride from Babulnath takes us to the heart of Muslim piety, Haji Ali. One of its kind, this 14th century mosque was built 500 yards into the Arabian Sea.

Then, splashes of color and smells that are distinct to Mumbai greet us when we reach the unique Dhobi Ghat. The sight, sound and smell of numerous clothes being washed together has never been so appealing as at this Launderer's nook. In the end, we get a step-by-step account of how tons and tons of clothes are washed, starched, ironed, and returned using the tradition of pristine Indian laundry.
