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.
It was not a hidden gem. Quite popular among foreign visitors and locals alike. Located in South Mumbai, Cafe Universal has been serving since 1923. However, I found this place out of the blue and liked this cafe instantly. The exterior may not be flashy, but the interior of the cafe is quite soothing. You can find their whole menu here. I enjoyed my quiet moments at the cafe with my pomegranate juice 🙂
Address: Shop-299 Shahid Bhagat Singh Road, Adi Murzban Path, Ballard Estate, Fort, Mumbai, Maharashtra 400001

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.
