The Mumbai Bazaar Tour
To get a true feel of Maximum City’s fabled ‘sensory overload’, its bazaars need to be experienced in all their chaotic splendour. The Taj Mahal Tower concierge curates a vibrant tour of Mumbai’s native market area of Bhuleshwar, at a 30 minutes drive from the hotel. Besides the 180 years old, perennially bustling Mangaldas and Crawford markets, the tour takes you to the iconic Jama Masjid, Zaveri Bazaar – Mumbai’s premier jewellery market, Phool Galli – the city’s oldest flower market, and Mumbadevi temple, named after and dedicated to the patron goddess of the original archipelago of seven islands that formed the city. From classic street food to amazing architecture, terrific shopping discoveries and the occasional bovine encounter, this is a delightful snapshot of must-dos in mercurial Mumbai.
