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.

Mumbai Dabbawala Center

The dabbawalas of Mumbai have long been a centre of curiosity among the people because of their accurate delivery system that has been never altered its professionalism over the last 125 years. The Mumbai Dabbawala Center is definitely one of the places to visit in Mumbai. The Mumbai Dabbawala Centre originally started out as a one-man army, when a Parsi banker wanted to eat homemade food and gave this task to Mumbai’s first dabbawala.

His idea was appreciated by others and soon, more office goers joined in the demand for home cooked food that had to be delivered in office, giving rise to a business that has famously become a case study in universities across the world, who try to learn and decode the Mumbai Dabbawalas’ exceptional accuracy in delivering the tiffin boxes.

At present, the Mumbai Dabbawala Center has as many as 5000 dabbawalas who deliver food from home to office every day with the kind of constant accuracy they have mastered over more than a century.

Victoria Terminus

Formerly known as Victoria Terminus, the Chhatrapati Shivaji Terminus is Mumbai’s outstanding railway station. Although this is a railways station and not primarily counted among places to visit in Mumbai, this building, designed by British architect FW Stevens, sports excellent Victorian Gothic Revival architectural style.

The designs are based on medieval Italian models, known as High Victorian Gothic Design, is remarkable. The domes, corridors, arches, and turrets are therefore distinct and prominently archaic. The construction of the building began in 1878, taking up to a decade to complete. Numerous British architects and Indian craftsmen worked day and night to give the Chhatrapati Shivaji Terminus the definition of what it is today.

This is why the architectural style doesn’t just boast of Victorian style, there’s a distinctive feature of Indian architecture in the building as well, making it one of the attractions in Mumbai for history lovers and architects who love to study the significance of various architectural styles in the building.
