You decide where you want to go on this tour! The route that we suggest focuses on religion (so important to the lives of most
Indians) and you look and learn about Hinduism, Islam and lesser known Jainism. Visually this is an impressive tour, with
Haji Ali located in the middle of the sea, and there are nice views from Mahalaxmi Temple and Hanging Gardens (over Marine
Drive). The open air laundry and the Gandhi museum are located en route and are also very interesting.
All sights are in the Mahalaxmi/Malabar Hill area. Malabar Hill is about 15 minutes drive from Colaba.
We generally use the same route on our Dharavi and sightseeing tour, so to save time and money you might want to do both on the same day (with a stop off for lunch).
This is a private tour and customized to you, so you can omit or add anything to the list. If you wish to do a completely different route, that's fine!
- Dhobi Ghat at Mahalaxmi See the dhobiwallahs, or washermen, scrubbing sheets from Mumbai's largest hospitals and hotels at this busy outdoor laundry area!
- Mahalaxmi Temple This popular Hindu Temple, dedicated to the goddess of wealth, is situated on a headland at the northern edge of Malabar Hill. The narrow street leading to the temple is lined by stalls selling offerings of marigolds, lotus flowers and coconuts.
- Haji Ali Mosque This mosque is located at the end of a long causeway protruding into the sea. It is the tomb of Saint Haji Ali, a wealthy Muslim who renounced the world and proceeded to Mecca. It is said that he died in Mecca and the casket miraculously drifted to the spot at which the mosque is built today.
- Banganga Tank The water from this famous tank, originally built in 1127 and surrounded by Hindu temples, is believed to have special healing powers. Rumour has it that its spring comes from the holy Ganges river.
- Jain Temple This is considered one of the most beautiful, intricately-decorated temples in the city. Jainism, an Indian religion, prizes peacefulness and non-violence above all.
- Kamala Nehru Park Visit one of Mumbai's greenest and most peaceful areas on top of Malabar Hill. You won't believe the extraordinary view out over Marine Drive and the Arabian sea!
- Gandhi Museum Mahatma Gandhi's residence in Bombay between 1917-34 has been converted into a museum, which displays pictures, models and books related to his life. The room on the second floor which used to be the living room and working place of Gandhi has been preserved as far as possible in its original setting.
