Lost in Antiquity

Decided to make use to the long weekend, took Deepthi to Chor Bazaar, Haji Ali & Chowpatty. It’s been ages since I last went to Chor Bazaar, We used to go there to buy cheap original sports shoes which used to be flicked from the docks.
Chor Bazaar today has become a must do itinerary on a Firang’s trip to the city and the Bhangarwala’s have become Antique Shops and must smarter, savvy and quote crazy prices for their wares.
Having said that, Chor Bazaar is a fun place to visit and to get lost in antiquity ;-)

    Greetings from Texas! I loved these photos, especially the Haji Ali. Is it true they are going to tear it down? Seems such a shame.

    Hi Patricia,
    They aren’t tearing it down, they are renovating it, some parts of the Dargah are on the verge of collapse.

    cheers
