  • It’s a place exists for 150 years, and located in this modern city. Surrounded by modern tall buildings, and still has more than 700 workers and their families. If you visit this place, just stay the high place to see that is better.
  • Its heritage place.. Tourist Spot. Manu people visit this palce on every weekend. Many film shot taken here. Good place to visit one.
  • Nice place where you can see the rice and poor in tge same place
  • A must place to be at. Its one of the wonders in the busy streets of Mumbai. We didnt take a local guide, wanted to explore it ourselves. I wouldnt leave it for any other tourist destination... Must visit.
  • I think it no longer has the wow factor. One can pass by from the bridge.
