  • This is a parsi cemetery, only parsi people allowed inside. A bit terrifing if you go during night time. Other than that nothing there.  more »
  • You can see Tower of Tower of Silence, the silence, from here tourists come across in Malabar Hill, have come to enjoy the view of marine drive most people think it is. Told of Mumbai's tourist attractions, and if a Zoroastrian institution cannot see inside the tourist because realistically it may be difficult.

  • In the tower of silence have only the parsing, as they are called in India access. Here is a burial place, where the dead are laid out. In India, there are now about 65,000 parsing, which originally come from Persia / Iran. There are still 20,000 parsing appreciated, and here they are called Zarathrusten. A place you hardly reach out. Meun taxi drivers had suddenly stopped and shown through on this site through a small forest and displayed the circling vultures. Nothing was aware before of this ritual. As a stranger or tourist, you must respect also such sites and closer I was also not going.

  • Not interesting to see but fascinating to know about. And if you visit once, you’ll be talking about it forever. In a drive around the Hanging Gardens in the upscale neighborhood of Malabar Hill, all you’ll see of the Tower of Silence is the entry way where the deceased are passed through and the vultures circling overhead presumptively doing what carrion birds do. The Tower of Silence is a "sky burial" ground to be respected, in a faith lasting millenniums, but the site of a macabre tradition perhaps hard for everyone to consider in the 21st century.
  • It's weird to think about such a place, especially in a city like Mumbai, but a very interesting place to know and visit
  • Only Parsis are allowed to enter the premises. Very scary place, with lots of bones and half esten bodies in a huge pit. May be disturbing for some. There are many peacocks here tho.
  • Dont go here before 4pm.. Direct sunlight.. For high trees to hide from sun,, so better to go afternoon..
  • One of the last resting places for Parsis in the world.

Where to stay in Mumbai (Bombay)

In a cramped city like Mumbai, finding a budget hotel can present a serious challenge. Many business travelers and tourists choose to stay in South Mumbai, the oldest and richest neighborhood in the city. Accommodations here put you close to most top museums, restaurants, bars, art galleries, and shops. Proximity to major attractions comes at a premium price, though--not surprising for one of the most expensive cities in Asia. If you plan to visit on a tight budget, look for options near railway stations, but prepare for low-grade rooms and few or no amenities.
