Explore the bustling markets of South Mumbai and learn about the city’s rich history.
Mumbai’s wide streets and narrow lanes are alive with activity. In front of colonial buildings, alongside temples, and everywhere in between, vendors shout from carts selling everything from colourful birds and flowers to traditional Indian clothes and food. We’ll guide you through the chaos and introduce you to Mumbai’s must-see markets such as Crawford Market and Mangaldas Market as well as some lesser known ones such as Flower Alley. Along the way we’ll also visit some of the oldest lanes in Mumbai and their most famous temples.
One of the city’s largest wholesale fruit, vegetable, meat market— and the first building in India to get electricity!
The largest indoor wholesale textile market in Mumbai where locals buy clothing materials for special occasions such as weddings and Diwali. India’s most famous fashion designers purchase cloth for their creations here!
This is the historic Hindu temple that is the namesake of Mumbai. If you’re up for it, receive prasad: blessings from Hindu priests. We’ll take a break from the busy markets and visit inside.
A small side lane that over the years transformed into a full-fledged flower market. Flowers have been sold here for nearly 100 years!
Nestled away in the heart of the city, Bombay Panjrapole is a sanctuary for the welfare of more than 350 cows. The cow is considered sacred by Hindus; to increase their karma, people will come to the shelter to feed the cows.
