   Home      About Bandra

 
Once a small village with plantations of rice and vegetables, Bandra, today is a posh area of Mumbai. The transformation is not sudden with the coming up of Bandra-Kurla complexes or say fashinable Pali Hill area. Actually it owes its development to a causeway that connected it to Mahim in 1845. Many bungalows were built here in the boom years of the 1860's and 70's.
 
 
The suburb of Bandra is the abode of many famous personalities from tinsel world. Aptly referred as 'Queen of the Suburbs', it is largely populated by Catholics and Parsis and is one of the most cosmopolitan areas of Mumbai.
