Byculla with Rafique Baghdadi, writer and raconteur


During the late 18th century, Byculla was an extension of Mazagaon, one of the seven islands that originally formed the city of Mumbai. The area was low-lying so was often inundated during high tide waters pouring through the Great Breach at Mahalaxmi. However, the breach was closed by the Hornby Vellard project in 1784, which joined all seven islands of Bombay into a single island. Byculla is an area of great historical interest and has many diverse places of worship.

Meeting Point: outside Byculla Police Station
