101 years after it was laid out, Bombay’s Marine Drive remains one of India’s most iconic roads. This graceful arcs sweeps along Mumbai’s southern shores, linking the residential and recreational neighbourhoods of Walkeshwar and Girgaum with the business hub of Nariman Point. Much of the boulevard is lined with stately art deco buildings, many hosting some of the city’s most expensive apartments. They look out to a wide public promenade where people from all walks of life congregate at all times of the day and night making it a veritable festival of human existence. At night, twinkling lights make Marine Drive look like a string of pearls, earning it the nickname, the queen’s necklace.
