Mumbai better known as Bombay is a famous city of neighbouring country, India. While our new generation is gifted with “hate India” material, we think it’s a sin even to read about and tour the beautiful land. But, The love of tourism comes naturally to some like me. Let’s not consider the Hate and read about this beautiful land. Do leave your feedback!
1-Gateway of India:
The most famous place of Mumbai is the gateway of India. The beautiful place is a land mark of the British Raj in India. The fort overlooks Arabian Sea and gives a beautiful view of the sunset and rain in Novemeber to March period.
The elephant’s caves are located nearby and tourist travel by motor boats to the caves. Gateway was awarded the 3rd Most attractive place, while Istanbul’s Sultan Sulieman’s Mosque and Topkapi were 1st and 2nd respectively.
2-The Taj Mahal Hotels:
The Taj Mahal hotel is a beautiful place located just in front of the Gateway. It is popular for its pure Indian welcome to the tourists. The hotel serves traditional Dishes while “Jalebis” “Biryani” and “Pani poori” are very much loved by the tourists. Located in the city centre you can easily walk to the Malls and coffee shops.
EsselWorld is an Amusement location of Mumbai, especially for the children. It is the best place to hang out with friends or family. With tickets available at cheap prices, EsselWorld has everything you might find in Disney. Roller coaster rides here are something you will remember for life!
4- Chhatrapati Shivaji Terminus:
The historical railway terminal of India is Chhatrapati. It was built during British rule in India. Almost every train that travels across India stops briefly at Chhatrapati.
Interestingly, The Samjhota Express that has connected Pakistan and India for over a century and is somehow an example that deep inside we are connected. Samjhota Express has always been on its route no matter its war or peace. A good example set by both countries.
5- Haji Ali Dargah:
This is an Indo-Islamic architectural structure and a very peaceful mosque in India. It is a Holy place of Mumbai and is always crowded.
People come here to pray and it is believed prayers turn true here. The religious tolerance of Indians is remarkable regarding this place. All of the governments of India have always tried to make this place better and to preserve this monument from decay and rain.
6- Girgaum Chowpatty
This is the best public beach in India. The atmosphere here is admirable. The cool breezes keep blowing here and make the coastal area look lovely. Crowded with tourists in evening, it is a cheap place with vendors serving traditional foods of India.
