Mumbai Area

Formerly called Bombay, is like the NYC of India, City of Dreams, if you could make it here you can make it anywhere. Made up rich, poor, aristocrats, artists, laborers, industrialists and the likes, it is one of the largest cities in the world. It has India’s most prolific film industry, as well as the world’s most expensive home and the largest tropical forest in an urban zone.

 

Mumbai is India’s financial powerhouse and fashion centre. If Mumbai is your introduction to India, prepare yourself. The city isn’t a threatening place but its furious energy, limited public transport and punishing pollution make it challenging for visitors. The heart of the city contains some of the grandest colonial-era architecture on the planet but explore a little more and you’ll uncover unique bazaars, hidden temples, hipster enclaves and India’s premier restaurants and nightlife. There has been much debate regarding the original name of the city. Some say the current name of the city Mumbai is the original name; and is an eponym derived from "Mumba", the name of the local Hindu goddess Mumbadevi, and "Aai", meaning "mother" in Marathi.

 

Others claim Bombay was an anglicized version of Bom Bahia, a name given by the Portuguese to mean "Beautiful Bay" and later made popular by the British as the name of the Bombay state. There is a lot to see in Mumbai, but the typical "tourist" sights are concentrated in South Mumbai.By Indian standards, Mumbai is a young city and much of the land comprising the city did not exist until it was claimed from the sea over three centuries ago. It is therefore, a pleasant surprise to find rock cut caves such as the Elephanta, Kanheri, and Mahakali within city limits.
