Hanging Garden Mumbai - One of the Spectacular Places in Mumbai

After the visit to National Gallery of Modern Art Mumbai, we took a taxi to Malabar Hills to visit the Hanging Garden Mumbai. Being a nature lover I was looking forward to the visit and take some photographs. The distance from Gateway of India to Hanging Gardens was about 8 km and it took 15 minutes in the car to reach the place. The view inside the garden was breathtaking with a colorful flowers, fountains, grass lawns and hedges. There are benches where one can rest after walking for a while.

The garden is also known as Ferozeshah Mehta Gardens and is built on the slopes of the Malabar Hills. The garden was made in 1881 and you can see Kamala Nehru Park opposite to the Garden. It got the name Hanging Garden because it was on the slope of the hill. One attractive feature of the garden is that there are many hedges here that are cut in the shape of animals. They are so perfectly cut and shaped that you will immediately recognize which animal each one represents. The Boot House in the garden is a favorite among children, who love to play there. It is made of stone and represents a ladies shoe.

From the garden you get a panoramic view of the city of Mumbai and also the Arabian Sea. The sunset viewed from here is really beautiful. It is an ideal place for photography and I took many photographs of the animal shaped hedges, boot house and the spectacular scenery. I saw many couples with children strolling in the garden. Children have lots of place here to play.

A wide variety of plants and flowers made the place even more attractive. The garden is open on all days for the visitors and the timings are from 5 am to 9 pm. So if you need a morning walk in the garden you can easily do so, enjoying the fresh and cool breeze. If you ever visit Mumbai, it is my suggestion that you visit Hanging Garden Mumbai. You are sure to enjoy your visit there.
