Mumbai, the cradle of the country's film industry, is a city full of glamour. You can visit the homes of the most famous Bollywood actors and actresses, see or share a hotel with many people who go on business, and stroll along Marine Drive. It takes you to an excellent overview of the skyscrapers that occupy the modern part of the city. You must remember that it is the second largest port in Asia after Hong Kong and also produces oil, which is quite noticeable.
On the other hand, Mumbai is considered the land of opportunities, making many people from the most disadvantaged rural areas of the country come to work in Bombay, thus finding a great contrast between the large shopping centres and the poverty that surrounds it. If you are travelling to Mumbai with a group of friends there are many amazing cafes and restaurants you can visit, also you can always check out what you can wear as friends together in a group.
CHHATRAPATI SHIVAJI RAILWAY STATION
The incredible hustle and bustle of Mumbai's Chhatrapati Shivaji Railway Station, formerly Victoria Terminus, does not obscure the beauty of this gorgeous 1887 Victorian Gothic building, a UNESCO World Heritage Site! Do not miss it.
TOWERS OF SILENCE, THE PARSI FUNERAL RITE
Being an excellent place to walk, from Malabar Hill, one can approach the Zoroastrian funeral rites since, if the day is clear, you can see from there the Towers of Silence, where the Parsis leave the corpses to be eaten by the vultures, as usual.
HAJI ALI MOSQUE
Haji Ali Shrine was built in 1431 and is a perfect example of Indo-Islamic architecture. The sanctuary is located 500 meters from the shore of Worli Bay. Remember, it's totally up to you to offer anything.
After finishing your trip to the shrine, don't forget to try the Rapporteur Falooda at Haji Ali juice centre located at the entry point. It is a pleasure to be savoured!
Your visit will be incomplete without a visit to the nearby Mahalaxmi Temple. The Haji Ali Dargah (Shrine) view from there is impressive.
The Haji Ali Mosque is famous because its access is through a narrow cement road above the sea while the tide is low; once it rises, it becomes an island.
Suppose we want to see life on the city's beaches. In that case, we can go to Juhu Beach, which is usually full of people, bathing, selling different things, doing henna tattoos, monkeys, people walking their dogs, etc.
Away from the hustle and bustle, you can expect a degree of peace here. The best time to visit is between 10 am and 5 pm. The promenade is popularly known as the queen of necklaces for its sparkling appearance at night when the street lights are on. Many locals come here for their daily walking or running needs, and this place is known to attract many couples, you can try wearing matching t shirts as couples and get some amazing aesthetic images here.
Taraporevala Aquarium has some rare and exotic sea creatures at one end. For a nominal fee, we guarantee you'll take home treasured memories forever. If you keep walking the other way, you'll be at Wankhede Stadium in 15-20 minutes.
Siddhivinayak Temple is the house of Mumbai's favourite god-Ganapati. It is incredibly well-loved, and hundreds of thousands of people visit the temple daily, including many celebrities.
As a tourist, avoid going out on a Tuesday as this day is dedicated to Lord Ganesha, and the number of visitors increases accordingly. That said, weekends also increase temple traffic, so your best bet is to visit on a weekday except for Tuesday.
As a constant tradition, many devotees walk from their houses to the temple. Some do it to fulfil their wishes, while others do it to show devotion.
This place is home to a cave labyrinth of caves and temples. The three-facing Shiva statue stands out as a centre of attraction! Carved into the rock, they represent the avatars of the universe's creator, preserver, and destroyer.
