    FAQs

    Where is Dharavi?

    Dharavi is situated between Mahim and Sion – two areas at the northern tip of South Mumbai, just before the suburbs commence (Bandra and Kurla). It is sandwiched between the Western and Central Railway lines. It is about 10km south of the International Airport and 18km north of Colaba, the main tourist area.

    What will I see in Dharavi?

    We focus on the small-scale industries in Dharavi, such as recycling, the making of clay pots, embroidery, bakery, soap factory, leather tanning, papad (poppadom) making, and many others, most of which take place in very small spaces. We also pass by the residential areas, where you really get a feel of how the people live and the sense of community that exists in the area.
    People from all over India and from all religions live in Dharavi, and you will see this diversity. On the tour, you will pass Hindu temples, mosques, and churches in the area.

    Is Dharavi safe?

    Although we cannot take responsibility should anything happen, we believe that the places that we visit are very safe. There are a lot of people in Dharavi (one million approximately in an area of 0.7 square miles) and there is a strong police presence in the area. Dharavi is generally full of hard-working, honest people, although for security purposes we ask you not to take valuables with you on the tour.
    In the small alleys, you have to be careful of low-hanging roofs, open drains, and occasionally exposed electric wires. Also, in some of the factories that we visit, there are fumes that can be hazardous.

    Is Dharavi hygienic?

    With the very high density of population and the limited infrastructure and sanitation facilities, there are areas that are quite dirty and smelly. We ask you to wear covered shoes.

    What clothing should be worn on the slum tours?

    We recommend that you wear covered shoes as some areas can be dirty, especially during the monsoon months from June to mid-September. We request that you do not wear clothes that might offend the residents such as low-cut shirts, short shorts/pants, etc.

    ABOUT THE THE LONGER YARD:

    The Longer Yard 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 the 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 the tough police crackdown, in the late 1990s with the rise of AIDS and the 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, the Bombay Municipal Corporation (BMC) recorded there were 50,000 sex workers here which was 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.
