About

As one comes to the end of the majestic Marine Drive of Chowpatty, they arrive at a small patch that once belonged to the Parsi community, but later was converted to a planned estate as a result of the great plague of 1896.


While this area has evolved to be one of the most prime real estates in the city, some remnants of the past as old as the 12th century survive to this date hidden away, below the hill.


Uncover these secrets with Khaki Tours #BelowTheHill

About the Organizer

Khaki Tours is a platform where heritage lovers share stories and folklore about the nooks & crannies that make Mumbai. The aim is to take “heritage conservation” from elite/intellectual circles to common man. Founded by BharGo, Khaki Tours expands the horizon of heritage from beyond 'Fort' & takes you to the meandering lanes of unexplored precincts like Lalbaug, Gamdevi, Kalyan, Alibaug, etc. which are not usually associated with 'heritage.' There are over 50 walks planned in the city and one new walk will be unveiled every month.
