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.

History of the 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'.

How To Reach Hanging Gardens

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.
