    Its a nice place to visit in evening. Light show is running on monument at around 7:30 PM daily. Its quite good and share the history. With lights both Taj hotel and Gateway of India looks great.

    Had been to this famous promenade in South Mumbai a few weeks ago. It is visited by locals and foreign tourists.

    Earlier known as Kennedy Sea Face in 1915 during the British era, this promenade stretches from Malabar Hill to Nariman Point. Overlooking the Arabian Sea, it is shaped like a banana and is 3.6 kms long. Also known as Queen's Necklace, this promenade is best visited during the evening hours. One can walk, jog, relax and view the sunset & skyline.

    Avoid the afternoon hours. It is well illuminated in the night due to the street lights and gets crowded by young couples. Had strolled along the promenade and witnessed the Arabian Sea & skyline. 

    This promenade is an ideal place for families, couples as well as young students. It is a must visit and should not be missed.

    This stunning Gothic building is probably the finest example of the ensemble of Victorian Gothic architecture of Mumbai alongside the hlHigh Court of Mumbai and the Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj Vastu Sangrahalaya Museum. If you have the option of visiting day or night, I recommend visiting at night when the exterior is beautifully lit up.

    This area of Mumbai is where you'll see most if not all of the major landmarks of the city including the Gateway of India, the Causeway, the High Court of Mumbai, the main Post Office. Some of these are the part of UNESCO sites of Mumbai.

    Had been to this ancient rock cut caves near Mumbai a long back ago. It is located at Elephanta Island.

    These caves are designated as a UNESCO World Heritage Site and was dedicated to Lord Shiva. It is famous for the rock cut sculpture of the Trimurti. There are 5 rock cut caves on the western hill that are visited by tourists. There are 2 rock cut caves on the eastern hill that are unexplored by tourists. One can get views of the surrounding area and the other side of the Island. Beware of monkeys that roam around in the vicinity. One can trek up the hill for 15 mins to get a good view and see 2 large British era cannons. Earlier, the entrance fees were Rs. 10 per Indian and Rs. 300 per foreigner. But, now, it is Rs. 40 per Indian and Rs. 600 per foreigner. There are restaurants nearby. There are small shops lined on the steps. One can walk or ride a toy train to reach the foothill. It takes an hour to reach the island by ferry from the Gateway of India.

    These caves are an ideal place for families as well as history lovers. It is a must visit and should not be missed.

    This is such an underrated place...
    I went in Feb so it was dry and not lush but beautiful nonetheless. I've been to Buddhist caves in many countries in Asia but this was one of the most impressive by the shear size of some.
    I was lucky to have a security guard take me around skipping to the best caves, providing simple indights into Buddhist life 2000 years ago and the use of rooms and shortcutting to the top. Worth the obligatory handout at the end. He demonstrated the auditory delight that is mediative chanting from cave to cave- if you're by yourself you HAVE to do.
    It's only from the top with the perspective of dustance that you can truly appreciate the overwhelming size that is Mumbai- wow!

    I hired a bike for the 5km in-it was hot but could ride almost the whole way (last 200m was fairly steep without gears- hint double check the chain is tight before leaving- mine kept falling off. Not a massive hassle but if you're not used to bike repairs it could be a long walk).

    About an hour from Mumbai- I took an uber rental but there was plenty of transport up there so you can easily just get a tuk tuk and find one back or a taxi.

    Final hint- stretch out- you're in for some steps..

    Coastal views with the skyline are nice but make sure the weather is nice. We went on the wrong afternoon when it was very hazy. Probably best to go in the evening.

    Open to all faiths and greeds. Walk in drop shoes off and walk upstairs to temple. Various times for temple offerings and Dieties are clothes changes numerous times of the day. Move yourself closer without fear of disturbing anyone. Very safe environment

    The causeway just really busy with newer shops as well as a street market and plenty of restaurants. It is quite an experience since the place is very packed with stalls on either side of the footpath, so pedestrians have a narrow path to go in either direction. The road is quite busy, but some people were walking on the street side, but you do lose the experience.
    The stalls sell a variety of items like clothes and accessories to pans and fruit. The shops are also accessible if you're able to get through the crowds to the store entrances.
    There are plenty of things to experience around here and worth a visit if you're in the area, particularly if you have come from the Gateway of India.

    Not a usual tourist spot but fascinating nonetheless and important to hear of this historic function still going on in modern day Mumbai.
    Beware all the street hawkers, especially the numerous small children to tug at your heart strings...

    The 18th-century peaceful, divine and beautiful Mahalaxmi Temple, dedicated to Goddess Lakshmi, graces the seashore in proximity to the Haji Ali Dargah.

    Temple is clean and well maintained. The temple doesn't offer parking facilities, bus stop around 500 meters away and cabs are available nearby. Shoe stand outside the temple without any charges. you will find shops of sweets, flowers and other goodies nearby the temple.

    Usually crowded and there is a huge queue. Have to wait for 30 min for darshan.
    Inside the temple premises, photography is not allowed, ensuring a sacred atmosphere.

    Receiving blessings from Mahalaxmi is an enchanting encounter. Upon departing, indulge in lots of the delectable street food options near the temple.
