The Fort of Bombay was once divided into a European quarter in the south and a native quarter in the north. The native quarter was where the wealthy Indian merchants resided in various community enclaves. At the northern end of the Fort was the Bora Bazar , the enclave where the Bohri Muslims resided, and towards the centre of the Fort, the Parsi Bazar which had the residences of the wealthiest of Parsi families whose legacy we see even to this day. Join Team Khaki as we take a journey through the Fort's ‘posh’ native quarter to discover the remnants of this bustling enclave and what it has transformed into today
