Modern Mumbai - Walking through the 20th century

Explore Mumbai’s most iconic neighbourhood on a walking tour that unearths its hidden histories – the stories that lie behind, around, and within, the buildings, streets and spaces so familiar to us today.

Beginning with city improvements and development following the deadly Plague epidemic of the late 19th century, this walk highlights critical moments in the making of modern Mumbai. From the high of Art Deco to darker, largely untold, histories of corruption, appropriation and inefficiency, from grating missed opportunities in urban planning post-independence to our on-going romance with reclamation, this walk explores planning, architecture and roads not taken in the building of the city we experience today.
Route: Mumbai University - Oval Maidan - Art Deco precinct - Marine Drive - Nariman Point
