The city of dreams with a never-say-die attitude, Mumbai truly is a Maximum City. Bombay as it was called earlier, was given as a dowry to King Charles II in the 17th Century and still has remnants of the British rule in its historic buildings. This dynamic metro is the commercial hub of the nation and has a fast-paced drive that's most evident on the local trains that ply between the city centre and its many sprawling suburbs. From Bollywood's flashy multi-million-dollar film industry to some of Asia's largest slums and a downtown area filled with elegant heritage colonial buildings, Mumbai is a city of contrasts. The glittering lights of the Queen's Necklace draw couples to Marine Drive and Chowpatty and Juhu Beaches are street food favourites, always busy on Sunday evenings when families flock to enjoy an evening by the sea. A few kilometres away Sanjay Gandhi National Park houses the ancient Kanheri Caves drawing history enthusiasts while the steel and chrome skyscrapers of Nariman Point feature some of the most expensive real estate in the world. Other landmarks include the ever-busy Crawford Market, Gateway of India, Elephanta Caves and the Mahalaxmi Temple.
