Mumbai’s most exclusive neighbourhood of sky-scratchers and private palaces, Malabar Hill is at the northern promontory of Back Bay. Surprisingly, one of Mumbai’s most sacred and tranquil oases lies concealed amongst apartment blocks at its southern tip: Banganga Tank is a precinct of serene temples, bathing pilgrims, meandering, traffic-free streets and picturesque old dharamsalas (pilgrims’ rest houses). The wooden pole in the centre of the tank is the centre of the earth: according to legend, Lord Ram created the tank by piercing the earth with his arrow. For some of the best views of Chowpatty and the graceful arc of Marine Dr, visit Kamala Nehru Park .
