Undeniably among the most historic neighborhoods, Fort binds the entire city together. Those wanting to learn more about the roots of Mumbai will have a treat picking up cues here. From Chhatrapati Shivaji Terminus (CST) (Mumbai’s most recognised railway station) to the famed Town Hall and some of the oldest bazaars, Fort reflects Mumbai’s rich past in ways that few neighborhoods do. Popular for its family-run Parsi
restaurants, special Gujarati thalis and khau-gullies, Fort is also the home for ‘Kala Ghoda’, Mumbai’s famous art district. Home to celebrated museums, art and handicraft galleries, trendy cafes and streets adorned with abstract art, this funky neighbourhood is a confluence of old world charm and fearless creativity of the local artists. One should not miss the Kala Ghoda Arts Festival held every year in February when the whole area transforms into a carnival for art lovers.
