Nestled in a landscape dominated by state-of-the art architectural wonders and towering sky-scrapers, exists the quaint and picturesque Worli Fishing Village. One of of the seven villages that make up the island city of Mumbai, this six-hundred-year-old village is a quintessential settlement of the original inhabitants of Mumbai – the fishing community.
A walk through this village will transport you to the land of stories; of people, of legends, of folklore and superstition. Little has changed since the time of the first settlement, be it the way they make their nets and catch their fish, their beliefs and customs or their age-old traditions. This tour gives us a window into the lives of the people, a walk-through history. One of the highlights of the tour is a walk inside the Worli Fort. Centuries old, this British-built watch tower still stands tall as it overlooks the Arabian Sea.
