Gothic Stroll - A Walk in Downtown Bombay
Fortified by colonisers for almost 150 years, the south end of Bombay marked the home of the British rulers. Though demolished in 1862 to mark the urban expansion initiative, the area is still known as Fort and its environs possess a great mix of architecture from the late 1860s.
To the west of this Fort precinct is a stretch of Victorian structures, perhaps the most magnificent in the sub-continent. Constructed right after the clearance of Fort walls, these majestic public buildings belong to the peak of Victorian Architecture in the late 19th Century.
This walk, along the invisible footprints of the old fort walls, will show us the might of the British colonisers and the urban development that ensued.
This guided tour is free.
