A nice tour of Mumbai (formerly known as Bombay). You visit the Gateway of India, Mumbai's most famous monument, a triumphal arch of yellow basalt standing on the spot where once the English first set foot on Indian ground. The trip continues along Marine Drive (the boulevard along the ocean, also known as "Queen's Necklace '). You stop at a Jain temple (Mumbai has the largest population of Jains all over India and has several Jain temples), the Babu Amichand Panalal Adishwarji temple on Malabar Hill, is one of the most beautiful. You'll visit the Hanging Gardens, a beautiful panorama over the city. A visit to Mumbai is incomplete without witnessing the activities at the Dhobi Ghat where Mumbai's laundry is washed and dried. Other monuments and sights along your route include: Mani Bhavan (the residence of Mahatma Gandhi during his visits to Mumbai), the Mumbai High Court, the Rajabai bell tower, the beautiful colonial Victoria Terminus, the colourful Crawford Market, Flora Fountain and the Prince of Wales Museum (closed on Mondays). Because this tour is a very full program, it may occasionally happen that not all places can be visited.
