Mumbai (Bombay) - Architectural Info

South Mumbai Area

This is the oldest part of Mumbai and houses almost all of the historic and architectural sites. Mumbai has some bits of British architecture in parts of Chhatrapati Shivaji Terminus (erstwhile Victoria Terminus also commonly known as VT). The CST train station building itself is a landmark and UNESCO World Heritage site. There are a few other Grecian style good buildings scattered around the CST area. The next good area is Colaba which has the landmark TAJ MAHAL Hotel built facing the iconic GATEWAY OF INDIA. The area around it is very nice and touristy and boats can take you for an hours ride in the seas. The Taj Mahal Hotel has been the host of almost all presidents, prime ministers and visiting dignitaries.  There is also the Maharashtra Police headquarters building (erstwhile Alfred Sailor's Home and later the Maharashtra State Secretariate) on the way to the Taj Mahal. Worth visiting is also the Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj Vastu Sangrahalaya (erstwhile Prince of Wales Museum of Western India) which is the best museum in Mumbai with beautiful manicured gardens and a statue of the then Prince of Wales in the garden.

Lion Gate is another landmark in CST which is the headquarters of the Indian Navy Docks in Mumbai. Opposite to it is the Kala Ghoda (Black Horse) area which has a good feel about it lined with restaurants ending into Rhythm House with the Jehangir Art Gallery to the left.

As you get along the JJ flyover from CST to go to central Mumbai, which is currently the second longest flyover in Mumbai you can see massive intricately carved mosques on either side of the bridge as also the huge Gloria Church at Byculla.

North Mumbai Area

Best architectural landmark is the Mount Mary church at Bandra Bandstand. It has a fantastic sea promenade as you get out of it. Going further north you will go towards the residential suburbs where there is no real architectural marvel or old history. All are glass and concrete modern buildings with shiny malls intertwined.
