South Mumbai Wanderings - In Pictures

Monsoon is slowly wrapping up here in Mumbai; clear blue skies donning the 'perfect weather' cap are cajoling you for some spontaneous wanderings. Mumbai, a city known for its constant bustle, has more in store than we can possibly comprehend. South Mumbai – the upmarket town side has quite a few legacies to enchant! Victorian-Gothic architecture, cultural heritage in the form of art galleries and libraries, streets and causeways, seasoned restaurants and cafes that exude a lot of character – all of it beckons an inquisitive wanderer for an enriching ramble.

So, get ready for some ‘South Mumbai’ glimpses!
