Overview

Start Point/End Point: 9:15 AM from Churchgate Station or 10 AM from Mahim Station.

Start Time/End Time:  9:30 AM to 1:30 PM

Through our educational walking tours, visitors experience a wide range of these business activities: recycling, pottery-making, embroidery, bakery, soap factory, leather tanning, poppadom-making and many more. 

We’ll also visit the residential areas of Dharavi. People from all over India have come to live in Dharavi, making it a microcosm of India. This diversity is apparent in the temples, mosques, churches and pagodas that stand side by side.

Kumbharwada is one of Dharavi’s oldest and most compelling communities, home to its thriving pottery industry. Spend a few hours with us learning about the community’s rich history and how it became the hub of pottery making in Mumbai.You will see where the material comes from, how it’s prepared, moulded into shape and finally baked.

We will also get hands-on, visiting a local potter’s workshop—where we’ll get a general overview of pottery making and have a go at wheel throwing and making a piece of Kumbharwada art.

How to reach the start point: The location is motorable and can be reached by a car or a taxi.
