  • One should not call it an attraction as it is the burial place for parsee community. Nothing to see here.

  • I am warning you to not go to the Tower of Silence! it is haunted and It is literally the tower of silence, hearing the eerie nothingness that may actually be the whispers of those who have passed away there!
  • This is where the dead Parsis are laid to rest. Beautiful surroundings but this place is a funeral area. Only Parsis can enter the bunglis but people of other religions are more than welcome to stay in an outer area where they can pay their last respects to their deceased friends.
  • See this is not a visitor attraction Although its one of the oldest places in Mumbai where the Parsis have been laying their dead for over 300 years, its completely offlimit to everybody except the parsis, and that too if they have come to lay down their deceased. Its a cemetery of a kind and not a attraction. Dont come here. You are absolutely not welcome here.
  • It is NOT a tourist attraction and should NOT be promoted/advertised as such. On the way down to Kemps Corner on Ridge Road (B. G. Kher Marg) after Hanging Gardens comes the Parsi community's final resting place, the Tower of Silence. This is strictly a private space; but for those who are not familiar with the Parsi customs and traditions, this holds a curious tourist interest.
  • This is the place used by Parsis/ Zoroastrians for purification/cremation/burial (whatever may be their word) for the dead. So other people are not allowed to enter and visit it, thereby maintaining is holiness and sacredness. Wikipedia has an article about this place. Read it.
