Mumbai Mélange - 7

Must-visits in Mumbai


As we close this week of Festival of Words and my series on Mumbai, let me take you through the places that you must visit if you are there.

These places range from my love for food to the solitude of sitting by the sea to some shopping to some sight-seeing.

These are my personal favorites in Mumbai and I am sure if you have been there, you agree with me.

With this, its a wrap on my Mumbai chronicles and I hope I did justice to the place. And I do hope you enjoyed this virtual tour as much as I enjoyed writing about it.

The iconic Gateway of India with Taj Palace in the backdrop. Clicked from a ferry ride.

Heavily guarded Siddhivinayak Temple. You must go if you believe.

Night setting in and lights glowing in full glory at Marine Drive

From Kala Khatta to pani puri. From ragda pattice to dosa. At Juhu Chowpaty.

Kids making sand castles, families having a little picnic of sorts. All this at Juhu Chowpaty.

I never miss visiting this CCD at Carter Road. Right opposite the sea. Cool location.

Pretty decent food joints at this stretch of Carter Road.

And I say it again. Candies at Bandra is a must!

Take a walk, eat a bhutta at Bandstand.

Shop for cool earrings, junkie accessories at Colaba Causeway.
