Sightseeing and Things to do in Mumbai

Last Updated: 25 May 2011 12 Contributors

Mumbai is a fine blend of old and new and that is what outlines the tourist attractions in Mumbai. The city has so much of history that it is practically impossible to think of Mumbai without its architectural heritage. Once a tiny island covered by palm trees, Mumbai today is financial capital of the country. There is so much to see and do in Mumbai, right from monument hopping to strolling on the beaches, eating local food to meeting Bollywood stars; Mumbai has something or the other for everyone.

More Advice from travelers on what to do
at Mumbai

payal namaste on 25 Dec 2010

Mani Bhavan or then again have you (it's the abode when Mahatma Gandhi resided whenever in Mumbai) : The favorite of all tourists coming to Mumbai. Mani Bhavan was home to Mahatma Gandhi whenever he visited Mumbai during the freedom struggle. It has a library, photographs and letters of Mahatma Gandhi and the doll museum depicting the various phases in his life. The two storeyed Mani Bhavan, which we are told has become a must-visit for foreign tourists because while Indians may give the Mahatma mere lip service, the rest of the world is still awed by his life and deeds. The quietude of his Mumbai dwellings which belonged to his friend Zakaria has a letter written by him to Hitler; a doll museum which depicts real life instances in Gandhiji's life like the Dandi March; and a library which has famed sayings of the man himself like 'All men are born free and equal', 'Life is greater than all art'.
