The city of Bombay was officially renamed Mumbai in January 1996. The mumbaites believe that this name came from the goddess ‘Mumba’, worshipped by the original Koli inhabitants. When the Portuguese arrived they called the harbour Bombaim, which may have stemmed from ‘buan bahia’, meaning ‘good bay’ in Portuguese, or was a corruption of the original Koli name.

The city of Bombay originally consisted of seven islands called Colaba, Mazagaon, Old Woman’s Island, Wadala, Mahim, Parel, and Matunga-Sion. This group of islands has been joined together by a series of reclamations, formed part of the kingdom of Ashoka, the famous Emperor of India. Bombay’s colonial legacy is the Gateway of India built to commemorate the Royal visit of George V and Queen Mary in 1911. Jamashedji N. Tata, founder of a prestigious industrial house, to counter a ban on Indian entering the then famous Watson’s hostelry, built the Taj Mahal hotel opposite the Gateway in 1903. 

Elephanta caves – This place resonates with the spiritual energy of India. The Elephanta Caves are a great tourist attraction in the vicinity of the large Mumbai metropolis. The Elephanta Island is located 10 km away from the Gateway of India at Mumbai. These caves house rock cut temples dating back to the 5th century CE. The Elephanta Island was so named by the Portuguese, after the statue of an elephant near the landing area of the island. These rock cut temples dedicated to Shiva Mahadeva are rich in sculptural content. Motorboats take passengers from Apollo Bunder near the Gateway of India.

Prince of Wales Museum – Prince of Wales Museum is the erstwhile name of Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj Vastu Sangrahalaya of Mumbai. In 1905, George V laid down, the Prince of Wales himself, who came on a visit to India its foundation stone. George Wittet, an architect, designed the splendid structure. The construction work was concluded in 1914, but the structure was converted to a military hospital for the period of World War I. Lady Lloyd inaugurated the full-fledged museum in 1923.

Anyone coming to Mumbai from this harbor is greeted by the huge monument, which stands as a authentication to the imperial bygone era of the city. As you pass through the gate from the city side, the first scene that looms into view is that of the waterfront of South Mumbai.

Marine Drive – Marine Drive Mumbai is a perfect place for enjoyment and lessening. This ‘C’ shaped area is 3 km long and is located in Mumbai south. Marine Drive adjoining to the Arabian sea comprises 6 lanes running along the sea coast. The Marine drive is a naturally formed bay on the Arabian sea. At the northern end of Mumbai Marine drive lies the famous Chowpatty Beach where a wide array of snacks and tasty food is available to the strolling visitors.

Chowpatty beach – Chowpatty is Mumbai’s most famous beach. During the day, it is the hangout of the happily unemployed who snooze under the shade of its miniature trees. But in the evening the atmosphere is more like a carnival: kids screaming on Ferris wheels or taking pony rides, wayside astrologers making a quick buck, monkey shows, and even the odd self -styled gymnast who will demonstrate amazing yogic postures for a small fee.

The incredible Varanasi, the “Dantesque” holy city with its river laden with human ashes is paradoxically one of the most vital places in India to which every dawn thousands of pilgrims come from all corners of the subcontinent to bathe to wash their souls. India and Hinduism, their rites and philosophies are concentrated in this microcosm: “the city where, according to the ancient texts, the most important of all trips begins, the one that each one undertakes towards himself”.

Khajuraho is the pinnacle of the Nagara style, the classic Hindu architecture of North India.

Under the slender stone towers carved with amazing mastery, we will appreciate the prodigious sculptural work of the walls populated by avalanches of nymphs, goddesses, celestial dancers and couples of lovers immersed in the ecstasy of a kiss or melting their rock anatomies in the most implausible forms of the act of love, like beings levitating amid the rapture of erotic fulfillment. Apart from the philosophical interpretations around the sculptures, there is no doubt that these are a tribute to feminine sensuality and beauty as a symbol of creative energy and a stone offering to the ritual of sexuality as the path to spiritual redemption. Khajuraho is one of the great treasures of Asia.

The great merit of these works, more than the biographical content on buddha, is their coloring and the courtly scenes of the palace where siddhartha was supposedly born among girls with huge eyes, dressed only in necklaces of jewels and gauze that accentuate the beauty of their dark bodies. Contemplating the joy and life of these paintings we understand why the rigidity of ancient Buddhism disappeared from India to give way to medieval Hinduism which, despite its ascetics, has been the most exalted celebration of sensuality in human history.

It is popularly believed that Nobel laureate Rudyard Kipling penned part of his famous novel ‘Kim’ in Bundi. In fact, so impressed was he by the place, that this is what he wrote about the Bundi palace:

‘Jaipur Palace may be called the Versailles of India … Jodhpur’s House of strife, gray towers on red rock, is the work of giants, but the Palace of Bundi, even in broad daylight, is such a palace as men build for themselves in uneasy dreams – the work of goblins rather than of men.’

Bundi is a magnificent town located around 36 kilometres from Kota. Dotted with palaces and forts, the place has a fairy tale quality about it. Bundi’s charm lies in its location –surrounded by orchards of orange, guava, pomegranate and mango trees, flanked by the Aravalli range and rivers and lined by fields of cotton, barley and wheat. Situated far from the crowds, it is the simple rural folk that lend Bundi its allure.

Bundi was once ruled by the Hada Chauhans. Many historians claim that it was once the capital of the great Hadoti Kingdom, which was renowned for its art and sculpture. However, in 1624, Kota separated and became an independent state and this marked the beginning of the downfall of Bundi. Whether that may be, Bundi still retains its charismatic medieval grandeur. And just like Jodhpur and Rajput, the architecture of Bundi also possesses a noticeable bluish hue, designed to keep houses cool during hot summer, in the intricately carved brackets and pillars.

Jaisalmer traces its inception to the 12th century. History tells us of Rawal Jaisal, the eldest heir of the Rawal of Deoraj, was passed over for the throne of Lodurva and a younger half-brother was crowned king. Rawal Jaisal went looking for a new location to set up his capital when he came across sage Eesul.

It was in 1156 that Rawal Jaisal constructed a mud fort, named it Jaisalmer after himself and declared it his capital.

It is also home to one of the world’s largest camel research and breeding farms; as well as being known for having its own unique temple dedicated to Karni Mata at Deshnok, called the Rats Temple.

The origins of Bikaner can be traced back to 1488 when a Rathore prince, Rao Bikaji, founded the kingdom. Legend has it that Bikaji, one of Rao Jodhaji’s five sons, left his father’s Durbar in annoyance after an insensitive remark from his father, the illustrious founder of Jodhpur.
