Mazagaon in Mumbai is a storyteller’s paradise. It has one of the oldest and the most beautiful villages towards its west and rusty metal clanking industrial seafront in the east, divided by the harbor line and expressway. However, for an ardent observer and history savant who takes a walk in Mazagaon, the barriers are pulled down.
Revealed are the stories from its identity as an island; its evolution till date is latent but loud in the very fabric of the precinct. This walk follows the trail of beautiful Portuguese-style residences, a Chinatown with a temple devoted to a noble king, leftovers from the shipbuilding era and much more from one of the most sought out localities of Mumbai in the recent past.
