You Can Now Step Inside The Gorgeous BMC Headquarters In Fort

If gleaning historical stories and gawking at stunning architecture is something you enjoy, then a visit to the Mumbai’s Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation (BMC) building is a must. Located opposite the iconic Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj Terminus in Fort, the imposing Venetian-Gothic structure has stood there since 1893. The colossal heritage building houses various offices responsible for Mumbai’s local civic administration. And now, for the first time in its 128 years, the BMC headquarters has opened its doors for tourists.

Designed by English architectural engineer Frederick William Stevens, the corridors, nooks and crannies are full of stories from the bygone eras. Want to take a look? Maharashtra Tourism Development Corporation (MTDC) and Khaki Tours, which has been conducting heritage tours across Mumbai since 2015, have put together a tour of the building. Learn about Mumbai’s evolution and the architecture of the building via stories about Sir Pherozeshah Mehta aka The Father of the Corporation, swing by the BMC Commissioner’s office, admire the majestic staircase, heritage dome, Mayor’s office, building courtyards, a duck fountain and other landmarks.

When: Saturday, March 6 to Sunday, March 28.
Where: Municipal Corporation of Greater Mumbai, Mahapalika Marg, Fort.
