The beginnings of the modern city of Mumbai can be traced to the area around the Horniman Circle, what was earlier the Bombay Green. It was the nucleus around which first the British trading post of Bombay, and later the Fort of Bombay developed. It was the hub of trade and commerce, where deals were struck between the British and Indians, and where important city institutions were born and developed. On our fist virtual heritage walk #Horniman Circle, we walk around the Circle to discover how the modern city of Mumbai evolved. NOTE: The virtual walk link will be shared a couple of hours before the event.
