This is a great way to explore Bombay’s British history and architecture. The ‘Fort’ refers to a fort built by the British East India Company, hugging the eastern coast, which was demolished in the 1860’s. When you walk inside this area, you will see an amazing variety of historic landmarks and buildings, constructed in different styles of architecture and built in a variety of local and imported materials. The varied use of multiple stones has imparted a unique polychromatic effect to the facades, particularly to those of public buildings built in the 19th and 20th century. Each building tells a fascinating story, about the men who built it, and the historic events associated with it.
