Top 5 Travel Places in Mumbai If Money is an Object

Welcome to Mumbai. From Dadar* we catch the B.E.S.T***** bus No.172 and get a ticket for rupees fifteen to travel anywhere in Mumbai for the whole day. We avoid A/C cabs and luxury buses as they are beyond the budget of the budget traveler.

Our first travel place is at the Siddhivinayak Temple*** located at Prabhadevi*. This Ganesha** temple was built in 1801. The wooden doors of the sanctum sanctorum are carved with the eight manifestations of Ganesha**. The devotees claim that their wishes are fulfilled. Even the legendary actor Amitabh Bachhan visits it. Stalls in the temple precincts sell statuettes, pendants and rings of deities and other gift articles for reasonable prices.

Another bus, No.88, to Haji Ali**** mosque, our second travel place, located on an islet in the Arabian Sea off the coast of Worli* and built in 1431. We walk the causeway to the mosque where we hear Sufi singers**** perform ‘qawaali’****. To complete our second destination we climb the steps to Mahalaxmi**** temple built in 1785 on the rocks, facing the mosque.

Our third travel spot, by bus 132, is the Prince of Wales museum****. Founded in1905 by George V – the then Prince of Wales it has a mesmerizing yellow and grey-blue stone facade and a white dome as its crown. The architecture, an assortment of different Indian designs, houses relics of Indus Valley to the statues and artifacts of Gupta, Maurya and Shivaji**** empires and paintings such as miniature and the British. Photography is allowed.

As we walk to our fourth travel spot, we are greeted by an 85 ft. yellow basalt stone monument with a 49 ft. diameter of the dome facing the Arabian Sea, the Gateway of India, at Apollo Bunder*, commemorating the landing of King George V and Queen Mary in 1911.

The bus 133 takes us to our last travel place, Mani Bhavan (www.mumbai.org.uk) at Grand Road*, which was a home to Mahatma Gandhi during freedom struggle and now a museum dedicated to him. We find here Gandhi’s famous charka, his photo gallery and 20,000 reference books.

We walk to the nearby sea beach carrying the day’s enriching experiences and camera clicks and relax on the sand, enjoying the sunset, the cool breeze, and the sound of the playful waves, all the while relishing the famous Mumbai’s pani-puri**** of the beach-kiosks.
