And, you think you’ve had the perfect Mumbai darshan??? Well, it goes without saying that you just saw the most prominent places like Marine Drive, Gateway of India, so on and so forth. But, undoubtedly, you’ve missed some ‘must visit’ places, the unseen places in Mumbai. So, let’s explore these places.
The Aarey Milk Colony is ostensibly the unseen Mumbai heaven. Even the typical Mumbaikars mustn’t have visited this place. Beauty personified, this sweet aromatic place is a possession of Goregaon East. It is truly a place where bounties of nature envelope your entire aura. One of the best milk colonies around, the Aarey Milk Colony mirrors the splendid lakes and mountains. If you’re a nature lover, tranquillity is sure to surround you here. Situated about 20 miles from the main Ghorbunder Road, over 16,000 cattle are reared here as a daily routine. Spread over 1300 hectare, the Aarey Milk Colony is apparently the “Chota Kashmir” of Mumbai and an incredible location hunted down for photographers. With a subtle wind blowing by your face, the birds out there like Cuckoo and White Parrot are sure to make you skip a beat.
Complementing this entire ambience, what could be better than a meagre priced boating experience? Traverse through the virtual net of rainforest trees in just Rs.20 per person for half an hour’s time.
There’s still much more exploration to dive deep in. Plan your next date, or for that matter, even a family picnic, to the Aarey Milk Colony.
This is one amazing recommendation to start your Mumbai darshan to unseen places of Mumbai this time. The Aarey Milk Colony can be followed by various other unseen places down the line.
You may want to visit a religious place post this, to effectively utilise the peace you attained at your previous destination. So, how about the Haji Ali Mosque? This venerated shrine will do all good to tranquilise your soul. And, it is actually one of the many desires people have in today’s fast moving world. To add a cherry on the cake, it proudly stands in the centre of the Arabian Sea off Lala Lajpat Rai Marg.
Your next move may lead you to the Bandra-Worli Sea link. This spine chilling architectural wonder is a latest entrant. Merely standing at one corner of the site and gazing this breathtaking construction ‘art’ is indeed an act that will make you wonder as to how much the world has advanced in terms of technology and the rest.
Further, you can continue your quest by entering into the Sewri fort built by the British. This watch tower strategically overlooks the Mumbai harbour and caps a part of the quarried hill on which it’s positioned.
This city travel will not only unwind the unseen places in Mumbai, but will also help you get an essence of almost all spheres in a single trip; from a religious junction to a patriotic one, your trip would become an all-in-one picnic. So, get your snacks packed and enjoy this ‘new version’ of Mumbai darshan.
