The glamour capital of India 

The home of Bollywood and its now world-famous film industry, this is the glamour capital of India. Even more fascinating, however, are the aspects of daily life that constitute the real Mumbai, be it from the sublime to the mundane.

The majority of Indians are Hindus, believing in a vast pantheon of deities. The most popular of these are visible everywhere, in large colorful temples, street corner shrines, shops, and on the dashboards of cars.

And then there are the dhobi-wallahs with their laundry, and the tiffin-wallahs with their lunch delivery, both popular and seemingly anachronistic services, run with a razor sharp precision that the West might be hard pressed to duplicate.

Your unique experience of Mumbai begins with a drive to a local railway station and the local laundry for photos that you’’ll never be able to duplicate. Drive past the Haji Ali Shrine with its white Mughal domes before exploring Khotachiwadi. Situated in the heart of the city, Khotachiwadi is a quaint area that consists of narrow lanes where time seems to have been standing still for decades. Take a break at the historic Taj Mahal Palace Tower Hotel for lunch before a stop at Mani Bhavan, Gandhi’s Bombay base.
