The Taj Mahal Hotel, Rajabai Clock Tower, the Gateway of India, and the Nariman Point, these are the Mumbai Wallpapers. Spectacular, immense, hectic, oozing culture and history, the city of Mumbai has everything a prospective tourist needs for maximum enjoyment.
Mumbai has an estimated population in excess of 21 million people and a population density of over 20,000 per square kilometre, giving it one of the largest populations of any city in the world. Sitting on India’s’ west coast, Mumbai serves as the country’s financial, commercial and entertainment capital, which explains why it has become such a magnate for the tourist industry. Almost 7 million foreign tourists visited India in 2013 and over 15% of those were from America.
India has such a long and rich history and a surprising amount of it is still visible in the city of Mumbai to this day. From the nineteenth century Rajabai Clock Tower which was designed by Sir George Gilbert Scott and inspired by London’s’ Big Ben, to the 12th century Banganga Tank which now stands as part of the Walkeshwar Temple Complex, the range of historical treasures to be found in this city is truly enormous.
Alongside the architecture one finds a wealth of museums such as the Victoria & Albert Museum (now known as the Dr. Bhau Daji Lad Museum) or the Prince of Wales Museum (also known as “Chhatrapat Shivaji Maharaji Vastu Sangrahallya”), all portraying various aspects of cultural and historical significance. Then, for those seeking a welcome break from the hustle and bustle of the hectic streets of Mumbai, there are the numerous parks and gardens located throughout the city. Victoria Gardens and Sanjay Gandhi National Park are just two examples. Take a moment to sit, relax and enjoy the peace of the moment as you live through the reality that is the Mumbai wallpaper.
