Bhavika posted on 20 November


If you are new to the city, or think you know everything about this city, we've found four awesome things about Borivali that you won't find anywhere else in Mumbai. Snobs, be prepared to be surprised, and Borivali residents, time to put your collar up!

Mumbai's First Fish Park

No matter which part of the city you belong to, you definitely have at least one friend from the very popular IC Colony {it's time to start counting!}. If you're a wildlife lover, we give you one more reason to visit Borivali. IC Colony is home to Mumbai's first fish park that has eight gigantic aquarium tanks inside it and so many different species of fish.

Ghanta Wala Paan Mandir With 450 Bells

Believe it or not, there's a Pan Mandir {yes, not just any paanwala} in Borivali's Lokmanya Tilak Nagar called Ghanta Wala Pan Mandir, which has 450 bells of all shapes and sizes looming inside his shop. Why you ask? Just because. These bells have been gifted to him by his customers from near and far. Today, these bells have become an iconic part and characteristic of the shop. Don't be too surprised if they ring a bell for every paan ordered while you wait for your paan to be crafted by them.

The Highest Point In Mumbai

Sanjay Gandhi National Park in Borivali has the highest point in Mumbai that you can trek up to. Called Jambulmal, this point is 468 metres above sea level, and offers 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.
