Mumbai has all scenic attractions which are portrayed in Bollywood movies. But the reality about struggling common Mumbai Citizen is altogether different from what countryside Indian or other may have visualized. If Mumbai Local train is main life line then newly introduced Metro Train from Ghatkopar to Versova has made some people working in Western side like Andheri, Chakala, Airport have found themselves in comfortable zone, next level to common man. But Six Sigma Black Belt accredited Dabbawalla group can be seen in common men's Local Trains only.

    King George V landed here in 1911 and last British soldiers left from this Arch of Gateway of India after independence of India. Enjoy boating from here. War vessels are anchored about 5 to 8 Kms away from shore. Beautiful view of Boats, vessels and Search/ Light Tower ( little away from shore). Different vendors of spiced Peanuts, Idli, which every tourist may not like. Pride of Indian Hotels, Taj Palace is just opposite it. You can sip tea / coffee over there and if lucky you can have a view of Gateway of India and Boats from window.

    Closer to the Gateway of India and Taj Mahal Hotel is Colaba, Colaba Causeway. Colaba is famous for imitation consumer goods, high-end boutiques. Navy Nagar, Tata Institute of Fundamental Research ( TIFR) are the gems of Colaba.

    Queen's necklace is the correct name of Marine Drive. Enjoy Arabian sea with tall buildings like express towers. Very smooth road drive. Most of the residential properties have been converted to Guest House / Boarding facility. Enjoy sitting on the sea / road wall eating peanuts. Many old & new films of Bollywood have been shot here. Close to Marine Drive Churchgate Railway Station.

    Many times, I have visited this place, earlier when Searock Hotel ( ITC Group) was existing ( now Annexe of Taj Lands End). Access to fort & Seashore was not that easy as is now. cleanliness is another which use to be missing earlier. One can view Bandra WorliSea Link, Arabian Sea. Closer to it is amphitheatre where I have seen many Live concerts: Jagjit Singh, Daler Mehndi, Kiron Kher, Sonu Nigam, Ila Arun .... A program organised by The Times of India: Lead India. But last visit was recently few days back. While going to Bandra Fort one can see Mannat, house of famous Shah Rukh Khan about 800 meters before.

    Have visited this temple decades back but this time in the month of November 14. Went there to see other attractions of temple premises i.e. Restaurant & Marriage Hall. Long ques was there for meals / lunch being Sunday. Cost Lunch was near Rs 400/- per Thali / person. All ingredients of Lunch fried in Pure / Shudh Ghee. One should taste the food here. Hall for marriage was also good but found its ceiling at the lower height, moreover was difficult to get the right person for query regarding booking of Hall etc. Temple is really beautiful. I went there from Vile Parle, Taxi Car had to be parked about one Km away viewing narrow road approach & traff
