Banganga Heritage Walk



The Bombay Heritage Walk takes groups of people on walks through the vintage spots of Mumbai. These walks, each roughly about 90 minutes, trail through specific areas of Mumbai and help educate people about the architecture, history and evolution of the city's landmarks. Walkers can choose to meander through the bustle of Crawford market, absorb the quaint East Indian settlement of Khotachiwadi or even gape at a model of the second oldest ship in the world.
Born out of the enthusiasm of two young graduates of architecture, the Bombay Heritage Walk has been around since April 1999 and was started as a part of the Kala Ghoda festival. Five years since, it has expanded to include specific routes with a common theme and has helped dignitaries like Chelsea Clinton understand the city and its origins.
This Sunday there is a Heritage walk around the Banganga Tank. I hope to meet you guys there. Look up the information in the image. BTW ..Satish Thanks a lot for the heads up on this.

Thanks for the link!

2 years ago I attended a Mumbai heritage walk with a rare tour of VT's interior. What a great chance...unforgettable. They said it was the first inside tour of off-limits parts of VT in many years.
