Places of Tourist Attraction in Mumbai

Noisy yet spiritual, flashy yet humble, Mumbai manages to cram so many extremes into one city it's no wonder that it leaves most visitors exhilarated and entranced.

A few amazing facts about Aamchi Mumbai, the City of Dreams! Mumbai’ is actually a set of 7 islands
The erstwhile ‘Bombay’, which is actually a set of seven islands, was not part of the British Empire but was given as dowry by the Portuguese when Princess Braganza married Charles II of England. It took 60 years to merge the seven islands of Bombay into one landmass between 1784 and 1845. The resulting island of Bombay was later merged with the nearby islands of Trombay and Salsette that lay to its North-east and North respectively to form Greater Bombay.

Mumbai is the seasonal home to a flamboyance of Flamingos
The seasonal Mumbai flamingos have been one of the city’s secret gems since they magically began appearing in the 1990s on the Sewri-Mahul mudflats on the island city’s eastern waterfront. Flamingo season runs through Mumbai’s winter—roughly, October to March.

'0' KM Milestone
When you travel towards Mumbai, you can see milestone stating Mumbai 35 Kms, but there is no '0' KM milestone….it is at Flora Fountain. Flora Fountain, built in 1864, is a fusion of water, architecture and sculpture, and depicts the Roman goddess Flora.
