Mumbai


» Location : Southwestern India, Maharashtra
» Formerly Known As : Bombay
» Best Time To Visit : October To March

Its young, its lively and a confluence of varied cultural currents and cross currents have given Mumbai a unique position of the most multi-ethnic city of India. The capital city of Maharashtra State , formerly known as Bombay lies in the southwestern part of India and occupies a peninsular site originally composed of seven islets lying off the Konkan coast of western India. Oozing with the cocksure self-confidence of a maverick moneymaker and "Bindass" (carefree) attitude, Mumbai is also country's financial and commercial hub and has a principal port on the Arabian Sea.

Yet, there's another face of Mumbai too that is of the most densely populated cities in the world. Mumbai is located on a site of ancient settlement and took its name from the local Goddess "Mumba" - a form of Parvati, the consort of Shiva, one of the principal Gods of Hinduism - whose temple once stood in what is now the southeastern section of the Mumbai city.





Gateway of India : Mumbai's principal landmark, the Gateway of India is a huge archway on the water's edge at Apollo Bunder.

Marine Drive : Marine Drive located in the central Mumbai, built in the 1920s and 1930s on land reclaimed from the sea, is Mumbai's most famous thoroughfare.

Juhu Beach : Juhu is one of the largest and frequently visited beaches of India. Located 18-km north of the city centre, it's a beckoning beach on the shores of Arabian Sea and is one of the posh localities of Mumbai.

Essel World : Perfect for a one-day holiday, Essel World offers over 40 exciting rides, games, and attractions. The Water Kingdom is said to be the largest of its kind in Asia.

Bollywood - The Film City : "Bollywood", as it is called, produces the second most number of pictures in the world every year, next only to Hollywood, U.S.A. Mumbai claims to be the world's largest production centre for films.


Shopping in Mumbai is a memorable experience as one wanders through its bazaars with striking names like Chor Bazaar, Mutton Street and Zaveri Bazaar. Shopping in Mumbai can be anyway one likes - air-conditioned and fixed price, or street market and lots of hard bargaining.


Mumbai, the business capital of India, is well connected with all the major cities and international tourist destinations. Mumbai is easily accessable by all three modes of transportation that is by air, road and train
