About Mumbai

Situated in the South Asia, India is a country that is known for its rich resources and culture. Its largest city, Mumbai, is a vast metropolis that boasts vibrant sights and sounds in every corner at any time of the day. Formerly known as Bombay, the city is recognized as the capital of the Maharashtra state and the commercial capital of the country. Apart from that, the city of Mumbai reflects the existence of Bollywood, which is strengthened by the presence of a wide variety of cosmopolitan features that work well for Hindi TV and film industries. Like many other countries that respect different religions, India also has a fair share of churches, mosques and temples, such as the Haji Ali Dargah. The Haji Ali Darga is a well-known destination for people of different religions, including Christians, Muslims, Hindus, Parsis and the like. Almost 80,000 people visit the sacred Dargah Sharief on a weekly basis. Some of the other famous destinations are the Siddhivinayak Temple and the Global Vipassana Pagoda, a center for meditation. Despite the strong presence of old historical sites of worship, the city is also noted for its modern architecture inspired by the British colonization. Indians had tried to replicate the majestic buildings of the British era, resulting to skyscrapers that reach 60 stories high. Malls and entertainment centers also started taking space and complemented the old districts well. Tourists can expect a balanced experience of the old and new in the city of Mumbai. There are many reasons to visit Mumbai, India and not just to immerse in the raw culture of the country. The local food in Mumbai is truly worth the visit. Most people often associate Indian food with spices just because most of their menus offer dishes that can set one’s mouth on fire. Spicy food is indeed a staple in every corner in India, whether you dine along the streets or at flashy restaurants. However, it is not just the spicy food that brings one to attention. There are also other well-known dishes that can tickle the fancy of any foodie. One of the best examples is the chocolate fondant which is best consumed after drinking dirty martinis. Potato dumplings, known as vada pav, are also produced to satisfy the cravings of thousands of Indians on a daily basis. Bollywood is also a major industry that puts the city on the map of the world. When it comes to film, Mumbai’s Bollywood is a prolific industry that defeats Hollywood, the industry’s western counterpart, in terms of the quantity of movie produced in a year. Statistics show that Bollywood can produce up to 200 Hindu films in a year, depending on the budget. Most Hindu movies deal with melodrama and melodies, which are very popular throughout the world. Some of their best movies include the Three Idiots and My Name is Khan. There is also a rumor that Bollywood is already stealing the stars in the Western world. Mumbai is a multi-faceted city that can be likened into a diamond. Other features may not be as sharp and clear as some, but the whole package is worth the attention and recognition. From religion and culture, to film and food, Mumbai is a must-visit place on earth.
