This weekend, take a break from Ganpati pandal-hopping and set out on a walk through the Dadar Parsi Colony, which is home to heritage structures, leafy bylanes and one of Mumbai’s most loved communities
What makes the Dadar Parsi Colony so special? How did it end up becoming the largest Zoroastrian enclave in the world? Who lives here now? Learn all there is to know about this locality, which is sandwiched between Matunga's Five Gardens and Wadala's BeST bus depot, with a free guided walk this weekend.
Organised by Sahapedia, an open online resource on the arts, cultures and heritage of India, the walk will be led by Vimala MV. "The idea is to understand the Parsi community better and look beyond the stereotypes. The walk will be filled with fun trivia and interesting facts about the colony and community," she says.
On: August 27, 9 am to 10.45 am
Meeting point: Outside Cafe Madras, King's Circle, Matunga.
