Khotachiwadi Tour

tour/img_750x275/T9_kotachivadi.jpg

Khotachiwadi is a quaint little heritage village built in the late 18th century nestled in the heart of Mumbai in an area called Girgaum.

It was founded in the late 18th century by Khot, who sold plots of land to local East Indian families. Hence most of the inhabitants today are almost all East Indian Catholics and that is the reason the area is dotted with crosses and altars. Recently Gujaratis and Marwaris have moved into the area.

When you amble through the narrow streets of Khotachiwadi, you will feel you are walking through a Portuguese village with its small and low one-storeyed villas made of timber, influenced by the Portuguese style of architecture.

Visit Khotachiwadi before the beautiful villas disappear to make way for the concrete jungle of the present age.

Duration:This is essentially a walking tour. However adding the time it takes to reach the place  from your hotel and going back would take at least 11/2 hours or more depending on where your hotel is situated. You could do this tour on its own or you could ask your guide to customize the tour according to your interests, at an extra cost, and make it part of any other tour.
