This is famous Marine drive,just to walk nice 2km road run along with back bay area.It starts Mallabar Hills to Nariman point.
The taxi drives knows where to get this pic,we went one flyover road ,from there can see full Marine drive .Night time, it will be very beautiful with all lights .Coun't see night time this time.
Have to go evening time,to walk.
This Aquarium end of Marine drive u can see.Its not very big one.But one of the kind at Mumbai.I just had look of inside.They do have few rare fish collection.Entrance hall can see wale bones display.
Ohh It seems its favourite visting place for school kids,it was crowded,have to move one by one :)
Entrance is Rs4/timming coun't see properly .
Address: Marine drive.
Directions: Its end of Marine drive.
Bhelpuri at Juhu beach
This is Bhelpuri shop at Juhubeach.
This is Bhelpuri shop,dont miss eating one of the puri:) .I usualy wont advice to eat road side shops.One must taste,its hygnic only,eheheh nothing happend to me next day.
I had Bhelpuri,:)) so yummyyyyyyy ,after it was good tasteing only i took the pic :).
The display too beautiful&colorful isn't?!
Juhu beach itself you can see many shops selling Bhelpuri.I was told by friend who is from Mumbai at Evening you wont get place to stand there.It will be all busy,when evening people comes to Beach.So my suggestion is ,anyone goes there you must eat one of the Bhelpuri.It will be spicy,dont forget to ask less chilly.
Address: Juhu beach
This is one of the Mumbai old building,1878.Old name is Victoria Terminus,now new name is Chatrapathi Shivaji Terminus:).But still knows by the name of VT :) only.
This is Mumbai largest railway stations.I dint go inside,i too tried my adventure train journy from Churchgate to Anderi :).
Churstgate is other main station.
I heared about Crawford Market,so thought of stoping there,its goverment municipal market.
Main thing is fruit market,you can get varities of fruits.Its worth to see inside,becas,i think its big fruit market India.
Seems all tourist will come here,took pics of Fruit venders,i just entered to have look,ofcourse with camara in my hand,:)
nearby Vender guy was asking me wana take photo,before i replied he is ready for pose ,haahhahahaha
Yah ,i too took photo,dont want to disapoint him,then i deleted later thats is diffrent thing ;).Come outside from road you can the buildings,its old Victorian building.
Its near VT staion. I dint buy anything,but went to cafe(ehhheh to have look of VT )
at Crawford market.I saw opposite roads ,many road side shops selling cloths to shoes etc.
Juhu beach is one of famous hangout for Mumbai people.
If you expect can swim&relax,then will be disappointed.I went to evening time,it was so crowded,its just look like market.:))
Side full of Belpuri shops,selling mouthwatering all type of puris,
and one side small vendors selling sea shells,souvenirs etc.
Water looks dirty,i dint remove my shoes:) at all.If anyone is going to Goa or other beaches can skip Juhu :)But around Mumbai so many beautiful beaches are there,with less crowed.
View from Park
Its in Malabar hills.Park is ok,its full of greenery,good place for walking.
But why should one visit here,its near Hanging garden&from here can see Marine Drive&back bay,Chowpatty beach.
Really good view from here,the pic u can see that.:)
At,Elephenta caves one can see seven magnificent rock cut caves.
This pic main hall,western side you can see,Lingam shrine ,inside 1m Lingam,four sideguarded by dwarapalas(doorkeepers),they too very big.Lingam is symbol of Lord Shiva.

Brama figure too.

How to go,plz chek my transport tips.
Photo ,At Museum
Elephenta caves is 1hr launch ride from Gateway of India.
This pic inside of Museum.Before entering to see Caves,have a look at Museum here.
They displayed pic from all caves,including Ajantha,Eellora,and
Elephenta caves pics with details.Its all about caves,Elephenta caves are giant caves
,with most impressive sculpture all inside the caves.
Its all about diffrent sculpture of Lord Shiva.
The pic shows details of Sadashiva,this is main most striking Shiva is Maheshmurthi,with 6m high,and three headed Shiva,dipicting him in his 3 aspects as Creator,Destroyer&Preserver.This inside the hall,count get enough light
so the pic came very dark :(.
Caves sides can see massive sculptured panels ,showing Hindu mythology.
Better get one guide, he will explain,if we see ourselfs we may miss many details:).
After getting down from boat ride,you have walk 1/2 km to caves,train (look like toy train from distance :)))runs,Rs4,it will take u near to Caves.
But again one has take steps to reach top of the caves.So better take water bottle:).
There are few hotels are there,usully it took half day trip from Mumbai,have to pack something to eat.Hotels all looking dirty heheheh,i coun"t eat anything there :(.Bottled drinks ok.
Address: Elephenta caves.
Mumbai must be lucky to have Mani Bhavan.Its place where Gandhiji used to
stay there from 1917-1934. Its one of the important Gandhi Memorial Museums in the country and it acts as research institute in Ghandhian thought&Rural Development by the Mumbai Unversity.Ground floor ,they have liabrary,more than 50,000 books for reference &lending section.
The pic you see is,where Ganddhiji living room at second floor ,they are trying to
preserve as far as possible,visiters can see thro glass.
First floor can see Picture Gallery,displaying from Ganddji life,all orignal pics.
From his childhood to later years.
There is one room, min figures showing important event in Gandhiji life,
it must be more than 28 tableaux ,with good lighting arrangement.Interesting to see small figures.
Have a look of few pic at my travalogue.
I thought there wont be any crowd here,i find many foreigners,with guide.
It was really nice to see people, interested to know about Gandhiji.
Inside ground floor,near entrance they have sales counter,can buy Postage stamps,Statues etc
Working hours,9.30am to 6pm on all days open.
Address: 19,Laburnum Road,Gamdevi,Mumbai-400007
