5. Elephanta caves: Also known as Gharapuri- the city of caves- its rock-cut architecture is world renowned and it finds its place in UNESCO World Heritage Sites. A ferry from Gateway of India will take you to this place. The setting of this place is ecstatic and peaceful in itself, along with the history which is primarily conjectural. The art, design and science of these caves are a matter of curiosity for intellectual minds.

6. Bombay Talkies and R.K Films Studio- Though these productions have not produced any movies in a long time, they are a depiction of the times when one of the largest film industries in the world- Bollywood was still finding its way. These places are reminiscent of the legacy of the great filmmakers and a haven for film enthusiasts.

7. Siddhivinayak Temple: One of the richest temples in Mumbai, this temple is dedicated to Lord Ganesha. It witnesses the flock of people from all over the world with the politicians, Bollywood stars, and famous entrepreneurs seeking blessings of the Lord here.

Being a site for a couple of Bollywood movies, it falls under the care of Archaeological Survey of India. It fell victim to the neglect of the authorities and started deteriorating, but later received the makeover of natural rock formations, providing pathways, and an amphitheater.

9. Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj Vastu Sangrahalaya: Founded in the early 20th century, this place is located near the Gateway of India. Built in the style of Indo-Saracenic architecture, this gothic building incorporates other styles of architecture too. It houses a vast exhibit of artifacts and relics from ancient Indian history, as well as from the foreign lands.

10. Jogeshwari Caves: Stated as the earliest and largest major Hindu Cave temple in India, these caves date back to 500 CE. Suffering from the fatality of encroachment and ill-management, they are still one of the historically significant places. Accessed through a long flight of stairs leading to a cavernous place, it houses the idols of various Gods and Goddess highly revered by the locals of the place.
