Byculla In A Day: Here's What To Do In The Neighborhood

Dive Into Mumbai's History

There is a replica of the Victoria and Albert Museum in London, right here in Byculla! Dr. Bhau Daji Lad Museum is a gorgeous museum that has a lot of stories to share via the well-kept displays.  If you’re a history buff, a visit to this museum comes highly recommended! 

#LBBTip-  It regularly holds art shows, exhibitions, and workshops too; check out the schedule and pop in for a show too! 

Visit One Of The Oldest Churches In Mumbai!

Originally built by the Portuguese in 1632, the Gloria Church was demolished in 1911, then rebuilt 2 years later in a Gothic Style. 160 feet tall turrets and lofty towers make for an impressive architecture…which means you’re getting great pictures for the gram!

Visit a Dargah Shaped Like The Taj Mahal
