timimg for lion safari at Sanjay Gandhi National park

by RVAAA

timings for the Lion Safari park and a ride on the toy train, in end December 2009/ early January 2010

Re: timimg for lion safari at Sanjay Gandhi National park

by Donna_in_India

That's a good time of year to visit. Timings for the lion safari are between 9:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. and 2:20 to 5:20. Probably best to go early before it gets very hot. Don't have information on the toy train but the hours are probably similar to the safari hours. Do check out the Kanheri Caves while you're there.

Travel Tips for Mumbai

Humidity

by SirRichard

One of the main sensations that lasted in me after visiting Mumbai was the humidity you could feel everywhere.

Maybe it was due to Monsoon Season, but everything was tropical and humid. You could feel it in the air and see it in the buildings, most of which had those dark spots on the white facades.

Mehendi being applied to my hands

by jessicadf

The second day of the wedding had all the women together, having mehendi applied. The floors of the room were covered with mattresses and pillows so we could all sit comfortably. The elder women in the family played and sang traditional folk songs and brought delicious foods throughout the day.

Bollywood

by Canadienne

Watching a Bollywood (or Tamil or Malayalam, etc.) movie is an integral part of a visit to India. The quality varies as much as that of Hollywood films, but it's an experience that shouldn't be missed.

Although I didn't manage to fit in a studio visit during this trip (my passion for Hindi movies didn't take hold until well into the two months), I'm hoping to do so this winter.

If you're heading to India, check out the site below for a recommendation on what to see. Their reviews are usually quite reliable (scale of 1 to 10) and will give you an idea of what you're signing up for. If you don't think you can handle 3+ hours without subtitles, give it your best shot and leave at intermission. . .no one will mind.

Elephanta Island

by MM212

Designated as a World Heritage Site by the UNESCO, Elephanta Island is home to cave temples dating from 450 AD to 750 AD. These caves were first carved by Buddhists, but as Buddhism declined in the region, Hindus continued to carve and use them. Locally, the island is known as Gharapuri, meaning "Place of Caves". The name Elephanta was assigned by the Portuguese, who took possession of the island in 1534 AD, and was derived from a large monolithic elephant statue that was once on the island (now located in Victoria Gardens in Bombay). The Main Cave on Elephanta Island ranks among the best cave temples in all of India. Elephanta Island is located in the Bombay/Mumbai Harbour, about 10km NW of the Gateway of India. It is a perfect day trip from the city and offers a respite from its traffic and pollution. A visit to the caves also provides an opportunity for a better understanding of Hinduism and its history. The hour-long boat ride begins at Apollo Bunder, next to the Gateway of India. For a more detailed description, check out my Elephanta Island page.

Bombay by night is awesome.....

by tarush

Bombay by night is awesome.. The heritage buildings get lit up and the young crowds step out... Take an evening to walk through the historical districts and admire the gothic architecture. The picture to the right shows the tower of the Bombay University with the Bombay Stock Exchange in the background.
