Worli Village Walk - Fishersolk Tales

Overview

Intrinsic to this megapolis is its fisherfolk heritage. The legacy of Mumbai's fishing community is a lively, flourishing living tradition, not something packed away on museum shelves for the eyes of gaping museum buffs or bored school kids brought in for a bit of culture.

So don’t walk away from the city with a skewed version of it… It’s not all about high finance, high entertainment, swanky homes and flashy lifestyles. The 800-year-old Worli Fishing Village shows another pervasive, energetic aspect of the city’s kaleidoscope of community.

Why you will love it

  • Exploring a lively, living tradition of the city’s community heritage
  • Discovering Mumbai’s roots which shaped its contemporary history
  • To marvel at the co-existence of two diametrically different aspects of life in a metro
  • What you will experience

    Ready yourself for a culturally immersive day of many new sights and sounds as you walk- the -talk around this over the eight-century old village. Sequestered amidst a cavalcade of state-of-the-art architectural wonders and skyscrapers leaning into the sky Worli Fishing Village is a composite entity of the seven villages that make up the island city of Mumbai and home to the Original Inhabitants of Mumbai – the fishermen community.

    The diurnal routines of the settlement follow ancient patterns – be it the way they make their nets, catch their fish, conduct their business, their beliefs, the custom or age-old traditions – nourishing those deep roots each day.

    Follow the queue to the shrine of Golfa Devi – The Goddess who talks to her devotees. This stone idol is the solution-giving Devi who counsels her devotees in a unique 2-way communication.

    Worli Fort, rearing into the skyline above the village serves up stunning views of the engineering marvel that is the Bandra-Worli Sea Link and a bird’s-eye view of the vintage village. Fresh air and refreshments will put the lift back in your step as you head for the quaint Nipponzan Myohoji Temple –a Japanese Buddhist temple. It is a legend for the resident monk, Bhikshu Morita, who during the communal riots in 1992, walked through the blood-bathed streets propagating peace between the Hindus and Muslims.
