Things to do in Juhu, Mumbai

Ancient yet modern, fabulously rich yet achingly poor. Once a sultry tropical archipelago of seven islands and the Raj's brightest jewel, Mumbai was the dowry of the Portuguese Princess Infanta Catherine de Braganza who married Charles II of England in 1661. Today it's a teeming metropolis, commercial hub of an old civilization seeking to find its place in the New World Order. Forty percent of India's taxes come from this city alone, and half of India's international trade passes through its splendid natural harbor. In fact Mumbai is the very soul of human enterprise.
