About Hanging Gardens

The Hanging Gardens, in Mumbai, also called Pherozeshah Mehta Gardens, are terraced gardens perched at the top of Malabar Hill, on its western aspect, simply opposite the Kamala Nehru Park. They offer sundown views over the Arabian Sea and characteristic severa hedges carved into the shapes of animals. The park was laid out in 1881 with the aid of Ulhas Ghapokar over Bombay's essential reservoir, some say to cover the water from the doubtlessly contaminating interest of the nearby Towers of Silence.

When seen from the air, the walkway in the park Hanging Gardens Path, spell out the letters Pherozeshah Mehta Gardens in cursive. A Dakhma, additionally called a Tower of Silence, is a circular, raised shape built through Zoroastrians for excarnation that is, for lifeless bodies to be uncovered to carrion birds, commonly vultures. Zoroastrian exposure of the dead is first attested in the mid-fifth century BC Histories of Herodotus, but the use of towers is first documented inside the early ninth century CE. This is first-class go to places in mumbai.
