Visit early morning to have a great experience ahead of crowds

Visit early morning to have a great experience ahead of crowds. View of Taj from here and vice versa is amazing. The area and water needs to be cleaned regularly.

I mean ok it is a must visit sight in Mumbai, but hey we certainly would not like it to lose its vale due to dirt and filth around the area. Otherwise it is beautiful but crowded.
