Bandra is located in the western suburbs of Mumbai. In Marathi, Bandra is known as Vandre, which means 'port'. Bandra has a history of more than 800 years. It was a tiny fishing village, inhabited by Kolis (fishermen) and farmers. In 1534, a Portuguese sea captain Diego da Silveira entered Bandra creek and burned the fishing town to establish Portuguese rule. Later, Bandra became part of English territory in the late 18th century and then it was returned back to the Marathas after a few years. Bandra is home to many churches, including the famous Mount Mary's Church. Several educational institutes such as the St. Andrew’s High School, St. Stanislaus High School, R.D. National College and the Rizvi Education Complex are located in Bandra. The luxurious five-star hotel Taj Lands End is located at Bandstand.
