Malabar Hill, The Mayfair of Mumbai Walk
Welcome to the Mayfair of Mumbai, India's most posh residential locality, Malabar Hill is steeped in Indian culture and mythology. Once it was considered a 'suburb' with a thick forest cover infested with panthers and tigers, Malabar Hill started developing as a residential zone after the old 'fort' walls were torn down. Even today reminiscence of the old palatial mansions, built by the rich citizens of the ‘fort’, can still be found in different parts of the region.
Breathe in an exquisite view of the Mumbai skyline while standing on the famous Chowpatty beach. Legend has it that on his way to Lanka, Lord Ram stopped in this locality and created the holy Banganga tank. The tour then finds its way into the Jain temple at ‘teen batti’ where secrets of Jainism are uncovered.
On this walk find out the etymology of the name Walkeshwar and at the Kamla Nehru Park and Hanging Gardens get a beautiful aerial view of the Marine Drive.
