Founded by city architects – Abha Bahl and Brinda Gaitonde, THE BOMBAY HERITAGE WALKS group has been organising walking tours around the city since April 1999. The heritage walks aim to raise the awareness of the people of Mumbai and visitors, about the city’s architecture and heritage monuments. Personalized, educative and imaginative, the walking tours highlight the vast range of architectural styles, planning elements and ornamental details, tracing the social and cultural history of the city.
