    Its a good place to but in mornings, evenings are too crowded.
    Good place to just sit and relax and spend some time with the ocean.

    Hutatma Chowk is a public square in Mumbai, which was named in honour of the Samyukta Maharashtra Movement, which was a demand for the creation of a Maratha speaking state. Located in the square is the Hutatma Memorial Statue to commemorate the movement. The square is a popular and touristy spot as it’s close to all the main sights of Mumbai and also has the lovely Flora Fountain.

    It’s worth stopping at this public square, it’s a very picturesque spot.

    This statue stands on the spot where statue of King George V once stood. The area is generally always crowded and you will find people busy clicking selfies. Go early morning if you really want to enjoy the locale.

    This tour was organized through TripADeal who used Special Holidays to provide the tour for North India The overall tour was very good value. The hotels ranged from average to very good.They were all clean and the service friendly. The guides ranged from average to very good. We saw all the famous sights - the Taj Mahal etc. The food provided was good. We had some interesting experiences e.g. riding in tuk-tuks to get to our hotel in the old section of Udaipur.
    Our main complaint was that on the Mandur express from Jodhpur to Delhi we were promised sleeping compartments with a maximum of 4 berths. We ended up with 8 in our space, which was a thoroughfare and we were left with very little room for luggage. The hotels were often on the outskirts of towns which meant some of the sights had to be left out because of travel time.

    On 3rd March'19 (Sunday evening), myself with my hubby went for evening walk to Five gardens and got to visit Don Bosco church.

    The Shrine of Don Bosco has today become a must- visit-at-any-cost spot for all Marian devotees who come to Mumbai. It’s history dates back with the Salesian priests to 1954. The church is dedicated to Mary Help of Christians better known as “Don Bosco’s Madonna”. The Shrine itself is an engineering marvel but what really catches the eye at once is the 12-foot-high gold-plated statue of Mary Help of Christians that stands majestically atop the main dome.

    Must visit church for Catholic !

    The tower clock was built in 1905. The clock still shows Bombay Standard Time. The time on this clock was not changed to IST post Indian independence.

    This statue stands tribute to Sir Pherozeshah Merwanjee Mehta, a Parsi politician, lawyer and one of the founding members of the Indian National Congress in the time of the British Empire in India.

    The statue depicts Pherozeshah Merwanjee Mehta as a Parsi gentleman wearing the stereotypical Parsi hat, dressed in a suit and the robes of his legal profession. The statue stands directly in front of the Municipal Corporation of Greater Mumbai building, opposite Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj Terminus. The statue is worth a visit. Not only is it a monument to an important man, it looks good standing in front of the municipal building and it’s close to the terminus, an attraction in itself.

    This statue stands in tribute to Swami Vivekananda, the Hindu monk best known for introducing Hinduism to the western world and for his work in promoting interfaith understanding between all the major religions of the world.

    The statue depicts Vivekananda in probably his best known pose, standing straight up with his arms crossed across his chest. The statue is not a must see in Mumbai, but it is located next to the Gateway of India in Colaba were most of the sights of Mumbai are also located, so it’s worth a quick detour.

    This statue stands in tribute to the Dabbawala, the lunchbox delivery men of India who deliver lunch from restaurants to people's homes and workplaces.

    The sculpture is made up of disks to form a structure of a stereotypical Dabbawala carrying a tiffin box in both arms. The sculpture is a fun and wonderful monument to the ordinary man. The statue is close the the famous Haji Ali Mosque and is worth a detour if you can spare 10 minutes.

    The impressive golden coloured statue of Chatrapati Shivaji, is situated on Juhu Tara Road, at the entrance to Juhu Beach Chawpaty.

    The statue commemorates Chatrapati Shivaji an Indian warrior-king, who stands on a castle turret, like structures, accompanied by 2 warriors and a cannon.

    He was born on 19th February in 1630 and died on 3rd April in 1680, aged 50. In 1674, he was formally crowned as the Chhatrapati, emperor, of his domain at Raigad.

    This memorial is to commemorate the Police Officers that died during the horrific attacks on Mumbai in 2008.

    There are 18 tall pillar candles, 9 on either side of a black marble plinth listing the names of those who died.

    The memorial is called Shaheed Smarak (martyrs' memorial) it is situated outside the Mumbai Police Gymkhana on Marine Drive and faces the Arabian Sea .

    It is a poignant reminder of those tragic days in Mumbai's recent history.

    This statue stands in tribute to Lal Bahadur Shastri, one of the Indian independence leaders and 2nd Prime Minister of India and Prime Minister during the Indo-Pakistan War of 1965.

    The monument is a statue depicting Shastri walking wearing the traditional Nehru style jacket and Indian cap. In his left arm he holds book, possibly the Indian Constitution. The statue stands atop a plinth referencing the aforementioned war. On each side of the square plinth is a sculpture of a pickaxe and machine gun forming an ‘X’ shape and underneath written the words "Jai Jawan Jai Kisan" in Hindi and English, which translates as "Hail the soldier, Hail the farmer".

    The statue is located about half way between the Gateway of India and David Sessoon library on Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj Marg. The statue is quite plain and more significant for locals than for foreigners. It’s worth a quick detour if you’re in the area. Otherwise I would not go out of the way to see it.

    This small golden coloured, statue depicting Mahatma Gandhi, in a sitting position is situated by the Santa Cruz Chowpaty Police Station by Juhu Beach.

    It commemorates Gandhi who led a successful campaign for India's independence from British Rule and a civil rights leader.

    The statue is tucked away and not the easiest to find. However worth have a look for.
