The walk will begin at Land’s End, the south-western tip of Bandra. We will visit the remains of the 17th century Castella de Aguada, popularly known as the Bandra Fort, and its immediate surroundings.
Mount Mary and St. Stephen’s churches
Leaving the Land’s End, we climb up Kane Road to Mount Mary Church, a Bandra institution. St. Stephen’s Church, a few metres away, stands in sharp contrast to Mount Mary, as intimate and private, as the latter is monumental and public.
We walk down to Ranwar village, one of Bandra’s few surviving village communities.
Chapel Road. The walk will end with an exploration of recent art interventions along the Waroda and Chapel roads.
The minimum age for children is 8 years, you can get your child along with you, however you will have to ensure that the child does not disturb the other participants.
If the walk has already started it will be difficult to know which location the group has reached and the guide will not be in a position to take your call, so it is best to reach the location 10-15 mins early.
