Even if you haven’t chilled a lot in Borivali, you definitely have a lot of friends from the popular IC Colony. Guess what gives you another reason to visit? IC Colony has Mumbai’s first fish park that has eight huge aquarium tanks inside it and many species of fish.

A Paanwaala With 450 Bells

There’s a paanwaala shop in Borivali’s Lokmanya Tilak Nagar called Ghanta Wala Pan Mandir, which has 450 bells of all shapes and sizes looming inside his shop, just because. Gifted to him by his customers from near and far, these bells have become an iconic part of his shop, and unsurprisingly, each time an order for paan is placed, he rings a bell.

Did anyone hear something?

Visit The Highest Point In Mumbai

Sanjay Gandhi National Park has the highest point in Mumbai that you can trek up to. Called Jambulmal, this point is 468 metres above sea level, and gives an astonishing view of the whole city. How about that?
P.S. There are several trek planners who regularly organise group activities to the highest point.

A Couple Giving Free Meals To Senior Citizens

Borivali is also made up of people with kind hearts and even kinder actions. The D’Souzas are one such couple in IC Colony, who have been making a difference since quite a few years now. The two, Mark and Yvonne provide free food tiffin service to senior citizens across the city. They connect with senior citizens who have been abandoned by the family, are living alone or don’t have the means to sustain themselves.
