Mumbai, formerly called Bombay, is a sprawling, densely populated city on India’s west coast. On the Mumbai Harbour waterfront stands the iconic Gateway of India stone arch, built by the British Raj in 1924. Offshore, nearby Elephanta Island holds ancient cave temples dedicated to Shiva.
Whilst Delhi is the political capital of India, Mumbai is the commercial and economic capital. The city is famous for its film industry known as ‘Bollywood’.
