Hanging Gardens, Mumbai Overview

Hanging Garden is a terrace garden situated on top of the Malabar Hill, right next to the Kamla Nehru Park. It overlooks the stunning Arabian Sea and was built in 1880 by Mr. Ulhas Ghapokar. The stunning gardens are dedicated to Barrister Pherozeshah Mehta and are also known as Pherozeshah Mehta Gardens. In fact, when viewed from above, one can clearly see the letter PMG spelt out in the gardens. The garden has impeccable animal shaped hedges and lush green vegetation along with a serene bird's eye view of the Arabian Sea.

Constructed on a water reservoir, the garden provides fresh drinking water to the local habitants. The beautiful flower clock situated in the garden is a major part of the charm of the Hanging Garden. Along with this, the garden is an apt place for early morning jogs and yoga. The garden is a tranquil getaway from the daily hustle-bustle of the city for some peace of minds.

More on Hanging Gardens


First built in 1881, the Pherozshah Mehta Gardens, also known as Hanging Gardens, were designed by Ulhas Ghapokar. Initially, they were dedicated to Pherozshah Mehta who was a prominent Parsi Political leader, activist, and lawyer. Due to his contributions to the city, he was named the Lion of Bombay. In 1921, the garden was renovated to its current state. Rumour has it that the gardens were built over the water reservoir in order to protect the drinking water from contamination from the nearby burial site called 'Tower of Silence'.

The best way to reach here is by hiring a taxi or an auto via the Walkeshwar Road and Ridge Road. Nearest railway station is Grant Road, from where the garden is just 20 minutes away.
