Arrive in Mumbai, a city that has collected its surrounding cultures, whether from across the sea or down the road, and become filled with diverse and endless energy. You are met at the airport by a private transfer and immediately you will see the delightful colors of the city sparkling off of the clothing, glinting off of the reflective skyscrapers, and blossoming over the hidden cities. Rising over the city streets at the edges of Gorai Creek is the 280 foot-tall golden stupa that houses relics of Buddha. The coloration and size of the temple isn’t the only stunning aspect of the architecture; the entire chedi was built without supports using ancient techniques to interlock the stones. It is a perfect welcome to the intersecting wonders of India and your golden time to come, filled with color, flavor, and energy at every step.
