Bandra is one of the most harmonious suburbs of the city. Despite its cosmopolitan nature, the place several religious buildings including churches like the famous Mount Mary’s Basilica, a Parsi fire-temple called Tata Agiary, the Jama Masjid (mosque) close to the Bandra West railway station and a temple dedicated to Goddess Jari-Mari. I got this shot off the high-way that runs perpendicular to the railway tracks, and it is a top-back view. Although I am a Hindu, the structure is simply breathtaking to look at, the nifty craftsmanship deserves to be admired, irrespective of caste, creed and community. Until I get an opportunity to take a face up view of the mosque, this one should be good enough!

  1. you are creating a great tribute to your Mumbai day by day, compliments!

    • Thanks Frizz…I am so inspired by all you guys that I now have the courage to take pictures on the street….And Mumbai is so soothing to the eye, its just a matter of where you look 🙂 there is a beautiful temple that i wish to shoot, but the opportunity rarely presents itself 😦

  2. I agree with Frizz. Mumbai is so immense even in one’s mind that it’s hard to imagine —

    You make it come to life, with so many kinds of buildings, and street life, etc.
    Not to mention fascinating commentary.

    Keep it up, Kamakshi — your time and energy is much appreciated.

  3. Bandra sounds amazing. The building is impressive. And the coMmunity spirit Remarkable.
