Mumbai Meri Jaan

Yay!! I'm in Mumbai today!! Only today!! *smiles* ... so here is sharing some old pictures of Mumbai!! And praying for peace, calmness, strength and safety for everyone in this gorgeous city!!
Here are pics of 2009 I think... I only had one day and hence decided to go to town and then onwards to the Elephanta Caves. Some pictures of town.
We had breakfast at Mondegars. This is one of the oldest and most popular restaurants in Mumbai. The breakfast extremely English!! The walls here have witnessed the change from Bombay to Mumbai…. – that you can obviously tell. This is how it looked inside.
From the door of Mondegars… starts the true Mumbai life!
On the way to the caves… Being situated on an island at Mumbai’s harbor, it is a two hour boat ride to get to the caves, and indeed we had fun!!
Here stands the Magnificent 'Taj'... we salute!! This is our heritage!!
The caves is a must see. When you are there, its difficult to believe that this is a part of the busy Mumbai. The Elephanta caves are made up of solid rock and are dated back to 600AD. They surely attract more visitors than the city of Mumbai. The caves echo the spiritual energy of India, with a collection of shrines, grand halls, courtyards, doors and arches. Unfortunately many of the sculptures inside have been damaged and yet somehow the Gods seem to smile and answer you when you are here !
On our way back to the city.... from the land of love and Gods..
Do let me know if you need any more information on travel within Mumbai!

  7. I just can't get enough of my city. it has only been a week since I am back. But already missing it. The will to live and the will to succeed. Everyday is a struggle, but with a smile. Traffic, Heat, Humidity, Rains, nothing can reduce my love for my city.

    Been 20 years away from the city, but is still me.
