Mumbai – The Financial and Entertainment Capital of India
A Sneak Peek into History
Mumbai, the capital city of the state of Maharashtra, is located on the west coast of India and is amongst the most populated cities across the globe. The city, which was previously known by the name of Bombay, was created out of a group of 7 islands, which included Parel, Bombay Island, Mazagaon, Colaba, Mahim, Worli and Little Colaba. The seven islands had been continuously inhabited since the period of Stone Age and it was only during the first half of the 19th century that the islands were merged together to form a single territory.

Prominent Tourist Places of Mumbai
Marine Drive: This magnificent boulevard built along the coast of the Arabian Sea in the shape of an inverted C, is a major tourist hot spot of Mumbai. The 3 km long road is known officially by the name of Netaji Subhash Chandra Bose Road, although it more famous by the nickname of “Queen’s Necklace”, a name derived from the fact that an Ariel view of the place is similar to a necklace of pearls. Visitors throng the place to get the magnificent view of the sun setting over the Arabian Sea. The road, which is lined by Palm trees, makes it a great place for taking a leisurely walk, besides which visitors can also enjoy a Tonga ride on the road.

Juhu Beach: This famous beach is located in the suburbs of Mumbai on the shores of the Arabian Sea, and is nearly 6km long, making it one of the largest beaches in the region. The beach is famous for its roadside footstalls that sell local delicacies such as Pani Puri, Sev Puri and Pav Bhaji, etc. In addition, the beach also has a small market where people can buy items of everyday need such as tee shirts, balloons, ice creams and other such things. The beach also features the Gandhi Gram, which was the abode of Mahatama Gandhi when he practiced law. It is also a prominent location for the shooting of numerous Bollywood movies and hence is thronged by people wanting to catch a glimpse of their favorite movie stars. In addition, the beach also offers magnificent views of the setting sun as well as landing and taking off of airplanes from the Chhatrapati Shivaji International Airport, located in its vicinity.

Gateway of India: Located in the South Mumbai region is the Gateway of India, a national heritage building of India. Constructed as a mark of honor for Queen Mary and King George V, during their visit to India in 1911, the Gateway has been built using reinforced concrete and yellow basalt. It faces the Arabian Sea and is a perfect example of the combined Hindu and Muslim architecture styles. Considered to be amongst the most renowned monuments of India, the Gateway features a central dome having a diameter of 15 m, while its archway stands 26m tall.

Hanging Gardens: Located on the western end of Malabar Hills, the Hanging gardens were established in 1880, on top of water reservoir used for supplying drinking water to the local population. The gardens, also known as Ferozeshah Mehta Gardens, are named after the renowned lawyer and creator of the Municipal Charter of Mumbai, Ferozeshah Mehta. These terraced gardens are known for the shapes of different animals as well as a large flower clock located in the center, all of which are cutout from    well-maintained hedges.  Although the locals visit the gardens mainly for a daily walk or jog, it is also a great place to enjoy the sunset at Arabian Sea in the vicinity of lush green environs.
