On Sunday, Lex, Sharon and I set off for another of the Mumbai Heritage Walks. This walk started at Churchgate Station and our first stop was the Oval Maidan. I think this is where some of the Test Matches are played and the amazing thing about this was that it was very easy to simply walk in and watch a bit of cricket. The area is surrounded by Art Deco buildings from the 1930s such as the Eros Cinema.
The Western Railway Headquarters by Churchgate Station.
The Eros Cinema complex was built in 1938 to replicate the cinema halls of London. From the Oval Maidan we walked along the Veer Nariman Road towards Marine Drive. This road was lined with interesting Art Deco buildings and used to be called the Miami of Mumbai.
Once we reached the end of Veer Nariman Road we walked the whole way along Marine Drive. At the top end of Marine Drive is Chowpatty Beach. At night the whole of Marine Drive is full of neon lights which forms a spectacular view known as the Queen's Necklace.
