Bandra walk with Sancia Sequeira
Bandra, now home to filmstars and a growing expatriate population, was a tiny fishing village when the Portuguese captured it in 1534. The
layout and houses in a traditional Bandra hamlet depended on the occupational group that lived in it.-kholis, bhandaris, bhois, In 1991, a few ‘gaothan’ areas were declared Heritage precincts. The first railway line through Bandra commenced in 1867. Also famous for Mt. Mary’s Basilica which is a place of pilgrimage, Bandra boasts of the Rajiv Gandhi sea-link which has contributed to making this suburb the most desirable one to own a home in.
