Gateway of India – It is one of India’s most unique landmarks situated in the city of Mumbai. The
colossal structure was constructed in 1924. Located at the tip of Apollo Bunder, the gateway
overlooks the Mumbai harbor, bordered by the Arabian Sea in the Colaba district. The Gateway
of India is a monument that marks India’s chief ports and is a major tourist attraction for visitors
who arrive in India for the first time. At one point of time, this monument represented the
grandeur of the British Raj in India. The total construction cost of this monument was
approximately 21 lakhs and the whole expense was borne by the Indian government. A favourite
spot for tourists, nowadays, this monument attracts vendors, food stalls and photographers. The
passing of the ‘First Battalion of the Somerset Light Infantry’ was recorded as the first main event
that took place at the Gateway of India. This ceremony was conducted on February 28, 1948,
when the last set of British troops and divisions left India, post-independence.

Tower of Silence – The Tower of Silence or ‘Parsee Bawdi’ is located on the top of Malabar Hills
and is spread over an area of 55 acres. Thus, in Mumbai, the Tower of Silence serves the
purpose of offering the last rites to the dead. Despite the open exposure to dead, the place has a
feeling of calm and peace, owning in part to the beautiful architecture and green surroundings.
The main purpose of the Towers of Silence was to be the laying place of the dead, the body was
to have been exposed to birds of prey. This was in accordance of the principles of Zend-Avesta,
which preached that the dead body should not pollute the air, water or soil by means of
cremation and hence such a place is created, which is also called as ‘dakhma’ or ‘dokhma.’ The
structure at the Tower of Silence has 3 rings, the first for male bodies, the second for female
bodies and the last one for children, though the actual area where the dead are exposed is
strictly off limits for all. Of late, however, the Tower of Silence has had to face a crisis, in the form
of the disappearance of the birds of prey like vultures from the Mumbai skyline, which as resulted
in dead bodies being kept in the tower for long period of time. Despite this, tourists are known to
take a sneak peak at the towers during their trip in Mumbai.

Mani Bhavan –  The old Mumbai residence of Mahatma Gandhi. It’s a pretty, two-storied
structure that now houses a reference library with over 2000 books, a photo exhibition of the
Mahatma’s life, and well preserved memorabilia, including an old charkha or spinning wheel that
Gandhi used to use.

Dhobi Ghat – A unique feature of Mumbai, the dhobi is a traditional laundryman, who will collect
your dirty linen, wash it, and return it neatly pressed to your doorstep. The “laundries” are called
“ghats”: row upon row of concrete wash pens, each fitted with its own flogging stone. The clothes

are soaked in sudsy water, thrashed on the flogging stones, then tossed into huge vats of boiling
starch and hung out to dry. Next they are ironed and piled into neat bundles. The most famous of
these Dhobi Ghats is at Saat Rasta near Mahalaxmi Station where almost two hundred dhobis
and their families work together in what has always been a hereditary occupation.

After the visits, return back to Hotel for overnight stay.

DAY 26 MUMBAI

Morning excursion to The Elephanta Caves, These caves are a complex of ancient cave
temples on Elephanta Island, an hour-long ferry ride from Mumbai. Designated a UNESCO
World Heritage Site in 1987, Elephanta Island is not only a worthy destination in itself, it also
provides a great view of Mumbai’s skyline and an escape from the chaos of the city.  The origins
of the temple caves, thought to date from about the 7th century, are obscure. It is known,
however, that the island was originally called Gharapuri – thePortuguese renamed it Elephanta
after they found a large stone elephant near their landing place. The figure collapsed in 1814 and
was subsequently moved to the far-off Victoria Gardens and reassembled. Shortly before the
Elephanta temples were created, Bombay had experienced the golden age of the late Guptas,
under whom the arts flourished. Sanskrit had been finely polished, and Kalidasa and other
writers had helped incite a Hindu religious revival under the court’s liberal patronage. Shaivism,
the worship of Shiva, inspired the building of these temples. Many of Elephanta’s priceless
statues were damaged or destroyed by the Portuguese, who apparently used the Hindu gods for
target practice. There have also been reports of vandalism and carelessness by modern visitors,
so take extra care to avoid damage during your visit.
