“An oasis of calm in a bustling city”
Reviewed 26 October 2013

The gardens are an oasis of calm in this bustling city.

On Malabar Hill, it is well worth a 30 min stroll to view the gardeners mowing the lawns with old fashioned hand movers, the topiaries and the lovers on benches! The gardens are fairly small, neat and tidy and one can rest awhile on a bench.

There were some flowers in bloom, not so many after the monsoon season maybe?
The gardens are not "hanging" so the name is perhaps a misnomer for those folk expecting to see rows of hanging plants in full bloom.



Anyway, we enjoyed the brief walk before heading back to the crazy traffic again.

“Go early or later to avoid heat of the day”
Reviewed 23 September 2013 via mobile

Pleasant stroll, interesting topiaries, on most city tour itineraries. Gardens planted above huge reservoir (tank) which is where the gardens get their name.

“not what I expected”
Reviewed 9 September 2013

I grew up seeing this hanging gardens in Bollywood Movies. To me it was a kind of a disappointment due to the colourful nature of movies or maybe I expected more .It is a great garden but to me seemed to great need to TLC to be at its glorious best.Maybe on my next trip I will re evaluate the attraction.

“Nothing out of the blue”
Reviewed 25 August 2013

Just a lovely green spot in the middle of such a hustle and bustle city on the top of Malabar Hill, an elite residential area in the southern part of Mumbai. Opposite Kamla Nehru Park.

The name is misleading. You can see no Hanging Gardens. The only attractions are the poorly maintained trimmed bushes in the shape of animals.

Not essential to visit. Nice to have a relaxing moment in the middle of Mumbai’s chaos, though.
