7 Historical Spots Every Mumbaikar Should Visit
Mumbai is rich in history that neatly blends with its modern avatar without taking away the antique value. While a substantial lot moves to Mumbai for a livelihood, the city also gets a massive influx of tourists on a daily basis. While they do visit all the popular spots in the city, a lot of them are missed out on. We culled out some of our favourite spots that will not only teach you a whole deal about the city, but also make for some breathtaking photos.
This majestic structure was conceptualised in 1911 to welcome King George V and Queen Mary. However, they only got to see a cardboard version of the Gateway of India because the construction only started in 1915. Built with a vision to lay an striking first impression, this was the entry point for all prominent Britishers and continues to be an entry point for incoming ferries even today.
Built in 1887 to commemorate 50 years of Queen Victoria adopting the Indo-Saracenic architecture, the station supports both the suburban network and central railways, and is a heritage site demarcated by UNESCO. Though one of the busiest stations in terms of passengers, the site also gets frequented by tons of tourists to capture the light play on the face of the building every day.
Oh, and there’s a hidden museum inside the station. For more info, click here.
An almost two-century-old building, Asiatic Library has Roman-Greek architecture with eight Doric columns in the portico and the famous flight of 30 stairs. We presume this is what makes this building Bollywood’s favourite spot that often doubles up as a court room for all sorts of drama.
