Dharavi Slum

Dharavi, Asia’s largest slum, invites many curious eyes because of the sheer vastness of it. It is counted among one of the places to visit in Mumbai because of the slum houses as many as a million people crammed in pint-sized houses, dirty bylanes, open drains, and extremely filthy living conditions in average.

Located in the very heart of Mumbai, the Dharavi slum stretches between two of Mumbai’s major rail lines, which is what makes it such a convenient location to travel for work for the folk who live here. In a city where rents are sky high, Dharavi offers rather low rent for people who move into the city.

You can find a room complete with a cooking gas and a small colour TV for as low as 185 rupees a month. Dharavi has many small-scale businesses thriving, manufacturing everything from garments to pots and pans. The products are sold in local as well as international markets, where they are exported.

The annual turnover for these products is as much as 650 million dollars a year. Visit Dharavi to see the lifestyle of those living here, for it is not every day you get to step inside Asia’s largest slum.
