#GrislyGirgaon by Khaki Tours
During the 18th & 19th century, Mumbai used to face the east as most people entered and exited the city from the port area. Hence, the inconsequential west coast was called the ‘Back Bay’. Plots along the rocky sea face were acquired by various communities to bury or cremate their dead as they were considered to be away from the town. As the town grew, the paddy fields and coconut groves in the area were converted into a residential zone that we call ‘Girgaon’. It is here that these new citizens had some old neighbours to deal with, a little too old! So, join us on our first ghost walk to see how the dead and the living interact with each other on a day to day basis.
Highlights of the walk
The Chawl of ghosts
The dead waiter who won’t allow the business to prosper
Early morning bath of the water nymphs
A ghost who protects you from ghosts
The grave that likes butter offerings
Haunted horse stables
The ghost who tickles
Story of the ass curse
And of course, the legendary ‘Mankapya’ of Khotachi Wadi!
