The cosmopolitan temperament of the city instantly makes you feel one with the people, walking through an abundance of historical and cultural sites like the ionic gateway of India. The old city of Bombay prides itself with a rich cultural heritage, a short yet flamboyant history, an impressive collection of temples, an amalgamation of unity in diversity with countless dialects intermingling.
