Art and sea food enticed me to make a short trip to Mumbai. From famous Jehangir Art Gallery to eye-catching yet evoking Sassoon Dock Art Project, I enjoyed them completely.
However, my focus was on the art project. An initiative by the St+Art India, the project brings together more than 40 artists from all over the world including Indians to convert the famous dock into a perfect and colorful art canvas.
The project depicts the daily lives of the Kolis, the Banjaras and the Hindu Marathas through various art installations and exhibitions.
Enjoy the exhibition.
You can read more about the exhibition here.
All the images have been captured with the help of a Mi4 mobile.

A UNESCO World Heritage Site, Mumbai’s Chhatrapati Shivaji Terminus or CST – formerly Victoria Terminus is one of the country’s oldest Victorian-Italianate-Gothic style architectural buildings.
Designed by Frederick William Stevens, it was built in 1887 in the Bori Bunder area of Mumbai.
This was my third trip to Mumbai but first as a tourist. Earlier, I visited the financial capital of India due to some official work. I was quite excited to visit Mumbai once again but honestly speaking I wasn’t expecting any big surprises.
But Mumbai proved me wrong. I wasn’t just surprised but astonished by the historic British era buildings of south Mumbai.
Simple architecture yet very attractive. These buildings, some colorful and some grey, took me to the bygone era.
These beauteous buildings will literally make you feel that you are in an European country. At least I felt so.
Being a huge admirer of India’s history, I was glad to discover a different part of Mumbai.
And If you are a history buff, then it is a must visit place for you. Meandering through the narrow lanes and eating in small eateries, my trip became more than wonderful.
And if you plan to travel on Sunday then there are many organisations which conduct heritage walk.
Mughal architecture always leave me in awe. Be it Delhi’s Humayun’s Tomb or Agra’s world famous Taj Mahal, their unique and finesse design always propel me to visit India’s grandeur monuments.
Following my visit to Taj Mahal, I decided to take a short visit to Fatehpur Sikri, which is full of marvelous historical places.
Travelers from all over the world visit places like Diwan-I-Aam, Diwan-I-Khas, Buland Darwaza, Panch Mahal, Jodha Bai’s Palace, Pachisi and Birbal Bhavan, which were built during Mughal emperor Akbar’s regime. Each one of them will take your breath away with its stunning and intricate designs.
Please explore UP Tourism site for more information on Fatehpur Sikri.
As I always say, if you are visiting a historical place, read its history first. It will make your journey more memorable.
In my previous Moscow post, I told you how I explored and completely enjoyed this mighty city. However, three days were not enough to know the city. During my trip, I captured hundreds of images of this beautiful city. So, I would like to take the opportunity to help you feel Moscow by viewing these images. Hope these images inspire you to visit this historic city in future.
