“Tough to access”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 26 February 2012

As there are limited things to see in Mumbai, this is a main attraction. Surrounded by police barricades and tough to access except from one side.

“Great Place but Shoddily Maintained”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 26 February 2012

Being one of the most important monuments from Historical Value, this place is shoddily maintained.   The Security barricades have taken away the natural beauty of this place.  Police do little to 'take care' of the elements that try to fleece foreigners here.
