About

In the 1860s, the island of Bombay (now known as “the city of Mumbai”) underwent a metamorphosis from being a fortified town to becoming a center for administrative control and commercial prosperity. The following decades witnessed the surfacing of magnificent structures which acted as institutions of trade, communication, civilization, education, finance and much more for the city. These towering structures became the harbingers of hope, befitting the zeal and aspirations of the city. One such body established at the time was the Bombay Municipal Corporation (now known as the “Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation”) for the purpose of local civic administration. 

The colossal heritage structure of the BMC Headquarters is opening its doors for the first time in about 100 years for tourists. This heritage structure has several stories to narrate. Enticing historians and architects alike, it will intrigue anyone with a penchant for cultural knowledge as well as indigenous people who connect with the city. At the time, Mumbai was the Urbs Prima of India - India’s foremost city and the BMC building embodies that fully.
