Lisbon-in-Mumbai : Khotachiwadi


Khotachi Wadi;  Mumbai 400004

The charming historic urban village of Khotachiwadi, located in the commercial heart of old Mumbai’s Girgaum area, is now a heritage precinct. Its narrow, winding lanes contain a unique display of houses in various architectural styles, with a distinct Portuguese influence. The best starting point for an exploratory stroll is St Teresa’s Church, Girgaum. Khotachiwadi is also a regular destination on Mumbai’s popular Heritage Walks.

After exploring Khotachiwadi, visit Anantashram, a famous but tiny eating house that serves some of the tastiest, cheapest seafood you will find in Mumbai, cooked over a wood fire.
