Where on one hand, there are a lot of places in Mumbai to be, on the other, we’re tired of people visiting (rather crowding) the mainstream ones. This blog here, is to encourage all you people, to get rid of bubble and try to explore the many other and even better corners of the city.
1. Kanheri Caves
Over a thousand years old and well preserved, the list definitely needs to start with Kanheri Caves. Deeply nested among the widespread surroundings of Sanjay Gandhi National Park are more than a 100 Buddhist caves.
Whether you wanna take a walk, or ride around the lush green park on a bicycle, give this place a shot and we bet you’ll keep visiting.
2. Five Gardens
Situated between the King’s circle and Dadar, five gardens is as calm and comforting as it could get. Surrounded by tall shady trees and the ever so amazing Parsi colony, this place deserves by all means to be on the list.
3. Sewri Docks
Situated along Mumbai’s less famous eastern coast, this place provides quite a heartwarming show during the months of October to March when the migratory flamingoes visit the area to breed.
The region also draws a number of other birds like the Grey Heron, Black-tailed Godwit, Western Reef Egret, Gull-billed Tern, Black and Brown-headed Gulls, Curlew Sandpiper, and many more. So the next time you wish to go for a drive, make sure you stop by and appreciate the beauty of it.
4. Madh Island
It’s surprising how many don’t even know this place even exists. At a distance of 32 kms from Mumbai, Madh, has more than just the beach to offer.
For the cycle enthusiasts and the ones who’re always up for exploring the city, this island has a lot to serve.
5. David Sassoon Library and Reading Room
Founded in 1847, the David Sassoon Library was the first structure to grace the Esplanade. As beautiful as it looks from the outside, the interior is much more intriguing.
With more than 40,000 books in English Hindi, Marathi, and Gujarati, this place for sure is a reader’s paradise.
Khotachiwadi is Mumbai’s architectural treasure. Seeming to have stopped in time, with its wide spread lanes and color splashed Portuguese houses, you won’t be mistaken if this place makes you feel you’ve landed in Goa.
7. Cathedral of the Holy name
Might not be as famous as the Mount Mary, but is undoubtedly one of the most beautiful churches in town. Located at one of the busiest hubs in Mumbai, Colaba, there’s no place that can offer serenity like this one right here.
Go ahead and start making plans for the weekend already.
