Good Morning. I am in Anushakti Nagar, Mumbai as I have small work here. Today I want to cover Bombay as much as possible. They've created this as a Fort of Shivaji. Previously, there was only a statue. Now they've created with Horses, Elephant & soldiers from that time like a fort. It is located just beside RK Studio. They constructed a tunnel here by which we can reach VT station in 25 min from Anushakti Nagar.
Beautiful Roads. No need to stop & toll free. This is on the route. Many towers can be seen here. This area is called Wadala. It's a beautiful road without any speed breakers.
Earlier it used to take 2 to 3 hours to reach VT station (CST). Now it takes 1/2 an hour This is VT station. Now it is called Chatrapati Shivaji Terminus (CST) This station contains many platforms & was built by British people. It's also Central Railway HQ. Because of Sun's glare, it's not coming properly. Here is the Municipal Corporation building, just opposite to CST Station.
Behind this building is the Mumbai Police Headquarters. There goes a BEST bus It's very beautifully made. Lovely. The buildings around are constructed by the British This road goes from CST to Gateway of India If you look around, all the architecture are done by the British. This is a famous place called Hutatma Chowk/Flora fountain It was called Flora fountain in the past. Now it is being called Hutatma Chowk. This is called Jehangir Art Gallery. All sorts of exhibitions happen around here
This museum is called Chatrapati Shivaji Maharaj Museum. This is the famous Gateway of India. This is the Taj Hotel. Palace & this is Taj Towers. There are lots of people here today. Lots of space for people to walk around.
Here it says "Erected to commemorate the landing of the imperial Majesty, King George V & Queen Mary on the 2nd of December 1911 That means, In 1911 this has been erected to welcome the King & Queen. Here is the Taj Palace, full view and the Taj Tower. Inside the Taj Palace is extremely beautiful. Very very nice This is a side view There are many boats here. Look, they are screaming "Elephanta" These boats will take us there. They'll take trip charges - to & fro There are some caves, but they do not have cleanliness & are not that great.
Now, there are some eatables now, but before there wasn't even drinking water. These boats are the ones going to Elephanta. In These people are waiting. Gradually, boats will come closer & take us for the trip. It's good. The journey throughout the sea is good & takes more than 30 minutes. A very good trip
In front of the Gateway, there is a Shivaji Statue built around a garden They've put an entry & exit point. They check each person's valuables & send in. Gateway of India has the same entry & exit point. This is Lion Gate. There are many gates for these navy ships. This is the area filled with these ships. Ballard Pier This is Society Mumbai. This is a very big library.
