South Mumbai

I’ve posted photos from our first three days in Mumbai. Sunday was a quiet day so we took a walk around South Mumbai.  Heading north from our hotel we walked past the Oval Maidan – a large park with at least a dozen concurrent cricket matches underway – snapped photos of the High Court and Mumbai University buildings, and down MG Road to the Prince of Wales Museum.  This part of the city is full of grand Victorian-era buildings that blend European, Islamic, and Hindu architecture.  Pam shopped at another FabIndia outlet, and we stopped to look at many street-side vendors.  CST, the central railway station, formerly known as Victoria Terminal, is a grand site to see.  Over 3 million passengers pass through daily.

Perhaps a highlight of the day was our lunch at Mahesh Lunch Home, one of the most famous seafood restaurants in the city.  Located incongruously on a dirty and dingy back street, the restaurant is sharply decorated in a modern style.  We were seated next to the fish tank, and enjoyed delicacies like prawn gassi and tandoori crab.
