About

#RottenRow by Khaki Tours


The credit for developing a prosperous walled town called Bombay into a city of international standards goes to a visionary Governor called Sir Bartle Frere. In 1865, he took the decision to demolish the Fort walls, and expand the city to the west. The money made during the cotton boom greatly aided his vision for the city - Urbs Prima in Indis - and on the open grounds of the Esplanade beyond the Fort walls came up the Gothic buildings that would do justice to the vision. On our new walk, #RottenRow, we take you on a tour of Frere’s vision, following a riding track that used to go around the Oval Maidan.
