Mumbai (Bombay)

Grand monuments & Bollywood glamour

Mumbai tailor-made holidays

Introduction

Mumbai is India's fulcrum of business, fashion and Bollywood filmmaking, a mega metropolis built around shopping, glitz and glamour. This modern ‘City of Dreams' is India's economic powerhouse, but older and more traditional ways of life still flourish alongside the modern business districts.

Mumbai's Iconic landmarks

The Taj Palace and nearby Gateway of India, the last departure-point for the last British soldiers leaving India, are Mumbai's defining landmarks and are a favourite for an evening stroll. Also in the city, the Chhatrapati Shivaji Terminus railway station is a spectacular Gothic-revival masterpiece, built in 1887 to commemorate Queen Victoria's Golden Jubilee. Outside of Mumbai itself, perhaps the best-known attraction is Elephanta Island, whose cave temple and massive three-faced sculpture of Shiva is among the finest examples of Hindu architecture in India.
