  ghats, about 114 kms. away from Mumbai.
  Built in the time of the Hinayana sect, during
  the Satavahana rule, these caves do not actually
  show the Buddha. A steep 350-step climb leads
  to the caves.
  At the entrance is a recently built temple,
  accompanied by a pillar from the Buddhist
  period. The facade of the caves is formed by
  carved temple screens, sculpted with railing
  ornaments and human couples. Outer and
  inner screens form an ante chamber to the
  main cave. The panels of the wooden doors

                                                      are by far the cleanest of Mumbai's lesser
                                                      caves. The complex is fairly big with 20 cells

                                                      The new name - Mahakali caves is therefore
                                                      misleading. The caves are carved into a long
                                                      hillside. One small cave in the middle, houses

                                                      seated Buddha and a few Buddhist legends.

                                                      attention. One of these caves has a multi-tiered

  The caves were surprisingly built by Buddhists      openings into it.
  possibly with the help of Persians. The
  sculptures in these caves are estimated to have     Mandapeshwar
  been carved out of the cave walls in the same
  period as of those seen in the more splendid
  Jogeshwari Caves. It once contained the largest
  Mandapa and a prominent Garbagriha. The
  caves unfortunately faced a series of invasions
  by different rulers, each ruler attempting to
  establish the supremacy of his state religion by
  defacing these magnificent monolithic
  sculptures. Most of what can be seen on the
  walls now are just dilapidated remains which
  are sad reminders of its glorious past. Centuries
  after the caves were built, the Franciscian
  Priests occupied the cave and built a church
  (now called IC Church) and a graveyard right
  on top of it, over the ruins of a once grand
  Shivaji fort. The caves stand, but neglected.

19. Sassoon Dock
Sassoon Dock smells of fish.
There are shelters where the auction of the fish takes place every morning. Once the auction is over,
the hustle and bustle of the fish market dies down to a strange lull, a lull only to be broken by the
fishermen preparing to go again for the catch next morning. Commonly, fishermen can be seen
cooking and mending their fishing nets. The feel of the dock is historical. There are ruins of the old
warehouses, an old chimney and clock tower at the entrance, which speak a lot about olden times.

   was originally meant to be

   British gained power, the
   Sewri fort was converted
   into prison and later used

   1772, the fort held-off a

   fort was taken over by the

  Terminus (Victoria Terminus)
  Formerly known as Victoria Terminus, the
  Chhatrapati Shivaji Terminus is an
  outstanding example of Victorian Neo
  Gothic Revival architecture in India.
  Designed by the famous British architect
  FW Steven, the building was built over ten
  years starting in 1878 according to a High
  Victorian Gothic design based on late
  medieval Italian models. Its stone dome,
  turrets, pointed arches and eccentric
  ground plan are close to traditional Indian
  palace architecture. This building is now
  one of the World Heritage monuments.
  64. Film City
  Mockingly called Bollywood by locals, Film     Film City
  City clings to the outskirts of the National
  Park, and is practically overrun by assorted
  stars and starlets. Bollywood churns out
  over 900 films every year, all packed with
  those mandatory elements of song, dance,
  melodrama, violence and erotica. Which is
  probably why Film City sets are heavily
  booked around the year. They are closed to
  visitors, but special permissions can always
  be “obtained” to check out the action.

  65. Gateway of India
  Mumbai’s most famous monument—the
  Gateway of India — is the first striking
  point for most tourists who want to
  explore Mumbai. It was built as a triumphal    Gateway of India
  arch to commemorate the visit of King
  George V and Queen Mary. When British
  Raj ended in 1947, the monument became
  a sort of epitaph as the last of the British
  ships sailed back to England, left from the
  Gateway. Ferry services to Elephanta
  Islands & Mandava available from
  here. Bus services to Alibaug available
  from Mandava.

  66. Hanging Gardens
  (Pherozshah Mehta & Kamla
  Nehru Udyan)
  Popularly known as Hanging Gardens,
  Pherozshah Mehta Gardens were renamed          Hanging Garden
  after the national barrister Pherozshah
  Mehta. Laid in 1881 a top reservoir that
  supplies water in Mumbai. Special features
  of the gardens are the hedges, which are
  cut into animal shapes. This is the place
  where people do yoga and callisthenics in
  the morning and evening hours. Kamala
  Nehru Udyan (the other part of Hanging
  Garden) provides exotic sunset view over
  the Arabian Sea and is also famous with
  children for the ‘shoe’ where they can play
  hide and seek.

           ABOUT BOMBAY CHAMBER OF COMMERCE & INDUSTRY


          The Bombay Chamber of Commerce & Industry, established in the year
          1836 (represented the Western Province), has established a strong legacy and
          impeccable lineage of rendering uninterrupted service to its members.
          While the name ‘Bombay Chamber’ conjures images of an organisation
          representing exclusively a city-based membership, in reality it represents a
          wide spectrum of highly reputed and professionally run companies which may
          be based in Mumbai, but whose manufacturing facilities and commercial
          influence spreads not only over India but internationally. Membership
          predominantly represents large & medium sized professionally managed Indian
          & multinational companies from manufacturing, services sectors and financial
          institutions. The Bombay Chamber’s membership of professionally run
          organisations contribute around a third of India’s trillion $ (dollar) economy.
          The Chamber has been very closely connected with the multifarious
          developmental activities of the city and the country.
          The Bombay Chamber has been in the forefront of the initiatives that create
          awareness and facilitate tourism, generate consequent spin-off trade and
          commerce. This year the Bombay Chamber aims at transforming the
          city of Mumbai from being merely a transit point to a tourist
          destination hub, by adding lesser-known destinations to the list of
          already known destinations.
          This Brochure has been published with this objective. We hope our readers
          will find it interesting.
