A city’s heritage resides in its stories, not in its monuments. When those stories are forgotten, even standing monuments become as good as invisible and heritage is lost. We, at Khaki Tours, are on a quest to rediscover and popularise Mumbai’s heritage by unearthing and narrating its lost stories on our heritage tours – on foot or from the comforts of an open jeep!

#KhakiWalks

One of the best ways to get to know the city and its heritage is by exploring its streets on foot. Our walks are immersive experiences which recreate the magic of bygone eras of Mumbai.

Mumbai in the 1700s: Paintings by James Wales
A KHAKI Lab exhibition

James Wales, a self-taught Scottish artist, arrived in India in 1791 and stayed here till his death in 1795. During his time in the country, he painted several portraits of leading figures of the Maratha court such as Peshwa Sawai Madhavrao and Nana Fadnavis. He also documented the sculptures of Ellora and Elephanta through his art. Among his other paintings are landscapes of the isles of Mumbai from those times. James Wales is thought to have died in Thane in November 1795.

On the occasion of KHAKI’s 5th anniversary, the KHAKI Lab is proud to host an exhibition of James Wales’ paintings of Mumbai in the 18th century. Along with the reprints of the original paintings, photographs of Mumbai in the 21st century from the very same vantage points will also be displayed. The exhibition will be inaugurated on 23rd January, 2020, at 6 pm by Mr Cyrus Guzder, Chairman, AFL Limited, and a leading supporter of heritage conservation efforts in the city. The exhibition will run till 26th January from 10 am to 6 pm.
