Marine Drive and Chowpatty Beach
Most popular hangout place near sea, This is the stretch now known as Netaji Subhashchandra
Bose Road with Nariman Point on one end to Babulnath, at the foot of Walkeshwar
on the other. For the most part, a pleasant promenade continues along the beach
with the Chowpatty area situated somewhat in the middle. Chowpatty Beach is a teeming
mass of people, vendors, masseurs and roadside restaurants with its specialties
being bhelpuri and kulfi. Across the Chowpatty Beach area is the Taraporewala Aquarium.
Marine Drive is also referred to as the Queen's Necklace because of the dramatic
line of street lamps lit up at night.
Malabar hill is essentially an up-market residential area with some spectacular
views of the city surroundings. On the road climbing up, is a Jain temple dedicated
to Adinath, the first Jain tirthankara. At one end, on the top are the Hanging Gardens
(Pherozeshah Mehta Gardens) and the Kamala Nehru Park. Both provide relaxing atmospheres
of greenery. Beside the Hanging Gardens are the Parsi Towers of Silence. But these
are off-limits to all except those who have come to dispose and pay respect to the
dead. Towards the other end is the Banganga temple complex at Walkeshwar, considered
to be one of Mumbai's holiest sites. Local legend has it that the Hindu god Rama
rested here on his way to rescue Sita (his wife) from Lanka. The Banganga Tank is
supposedly the spot where Rama shot his bow or bana. Further away is the British
built Raj Bhavan, the residence of the governor of Maharashtra. The Banganga Festival
of Music is a yearly highlight, and is in the month of January usually.

temple dedicated to Ganesh was rebuilt on the site of a 200-year old temple. Built
of black stone, the idol of Ganesh is two and a half feet in height and two feet
in width. An unusual feature of the statue is that the trunk turns to the right,
not often found on Ganesh idols. Tuesday is the main day of darshan and puja, but
this temple is frequented by hundreds of devotees everyday.
Juhu Beach is suburban beach is great favorite with Mumbaites, and
has plenty to offer everyone. Like Marine Drive's Chowpatty, Juhu 'Chowpatty' is
