Mumbai is in all ways a mega-city driven by power, wealth, glamour and fame. It is also a city with strong historical links, wonderful British architecture, museums, beaches, places of worship, and above all, a true galaxy of stars where Bollywood reigns supreme. The seven islands that came to constitute Mumbai were earlier home to communities of fishing colonies. For centuries, the islands were under the control of successive indigenous empires before being ceded to the Portuguese and subsequently to the British East India Company. During the mid-18th century, Bombay was reshaped with the construction of major roads and railways, the reclamation project transformed Bombay into a major seaport on the Arabian Sea. Upon India’s independence in 1947 the city was incorporated into Bombay State. In 1960, following the Sanyukta Maharashtra movement, a new state of Maharashtra was created with Bombay as the capital. The city was renamed Mumbai in 1996. And in this short period of development, the city has transformed into the commercial and entertainment capital of India.
Mumbai is a compact mix of traditional and modern. A lively and varied place, this waterfront city boasts a vibrant and cosmopolitan identity. Few cities in the world leave visitors with such vivid impressions, whether it's the glitz and glamour of 'Bollywood', the spectacular array of Victorian buildings, the seaside rendezvous on Juhu Beach, or the maze of alleyways and streets of Mumbai.
