DescriptionJoin us on a Bandra Walking Tour and step back in time to the days of yore when Mumbai was just a set of seven islands, each with its unique tales. Discover the hidden heritage treasures left behind by the Western and native forefathers in the suburb that continues to intrigue both natives and non-natives alike. Bandra, also known as the “Queen of the Suburbs” in Mumbai, is a melting pot of cultures with a rich Portuguese heritage. In 1534, Salsette Island, of which Bandra was a part, came under Portuguese rule, and Brother Manual Gomes, a Portuguese missionary, arrived soon after. He managed to convert several locals and laid the foundation for eight churches in the area. Bandra Walk is an ideal walking tour for those who want to explore the neighborhood’s Portuguese past, including forts, churches, and Indo-Portuguese Catholic villages. The lure of international influences and liberal attitudes has drawn droves of celebrities, models, musicians, hipsters, and ex-pats to this multi-faceted neighborhood, leading to a steady stream of stylish new restaurants, bars, and boutiques that cater to their cosmopolitan lifestyle. So come along and explore the rich history and current trends of Bandra West with us, and experience the perfect blend of old-world charm and modern-day sophistication on this guided walking tour.
