This one of my favourite buildings in Mumbai. It was built in 1870. The David Sassoon Library and Reading Room is a three-storied public library. It is located at Kalaghoda in Mumbai (Fort).
Apart from being a store house of different interesting books, this library also provides a relaxing reading environment to its readers.
It is one of the oldest Library and Reading rooms in use in Mumbai.
The library’s main assets are the rare books, some books published way back in 1798.
It is very peaceful and cool inside and worth a visit. It was not a problem to visit the building, but no photos to be taken inside.
