Banganga Walkeshwar Walking Tour

Take a Best of Mumbai’s exclusive Malabar Hill, at the northern end of Back Bay, Banganga Tank is a sacred oasis where it feels like time has stood still for centuries. The tank is a contrasting microcosm of the fast-paced city and one which many locals aren’t even familiar with. This is understandable, as secluded Banganga Tank isn’t somewhere that can be randomly passed by. 
Our Friendly well experienced English Speaking Guide who is Born up & Rise up there and still lives at Banganga Residence.
Visiting Banganga Tank provides an exceptional opportunity to submerge yourself in the history of the city, and learn about how it evolved from seven sparsely populated islands to the bustling metropolis it is today. Banganga Walkeshwar Walk is flanked by a narrow street lined with temples, homes, and dharamsalas (religious rest houses). It forms the route of the holy parikrama, a walk around the tank on foot, which Hindus believe to have immense purifying benefits. There’s also a dhobi ghat which is Mumbai’s most famous open-air laundry.

The Longer Yard

 

 

ABOUT THE THE LONGER YARD:

This tour is a half day experience, Dharavi has an active informal economy in which numerous household enterprises employ many of the slum residents, leather, textiles and pottery products are among the goods made inside Dharavi. Most of these things are created innovatively, in very small spaces!
Before the visit to Dharavi slum, we pass through Red Light Area (Kamathipura) & Dhobi Gath (Open Air Laundry)
>Kamathipura (also spelled Kamthipura) is Mumbai’s oldest and Asia’s second largest Red-Light District. It was first settled after 1795 with the construction of causeways that connected the erstwhile seven islands of Bombay. Initially known as Lal Bazaar, it got its name from the Kamathis (workers) of other areas of the country, who were laborers on construction sites. Due to tough police crackdown, in the late 1990s with the rise of AIDS and government’s redevelopment policy that helped sex workers to move out of the profession and subsequently out of Kamathipura, the number of sex workers in the area has dwindled. In 1992, Bombay Municipal Corporation (BMC) recorded there were 50,000 sex workers here which were reduced to 1,600 in 2009, with many sex workers migrating to other areas in Maharashtra and real estate developers taking over the high-priced real estate.
>Dhobi Ghat (Mahalaxmi Dhobi Ghat) is a well-known open-air laundromat in Mumbai, India. The washers, locally known as Dhobis, work in the open to wash the clothes from Mumbai’s hotels and hospitals. There are rows of open-air concrete wash pens, each fitted with its own flogging stone. Called the world’s largest outdoor laundry, Dhobi Ghat is a very popular attraction among foreign tourists.
The word Dhobi Ghat is used all over India to refer to any place where many washers are present. It is located next to Mahalaxmi railway station on the Western Railway’s Saat Rasta roundabout. It can be easily seen from the flyover bridge of Mahalaxmi station.
In 2013, World Records India and World Amazing Records honored World Record Certificate to Dhobi Kalyan.
