Did you know that even before ‘Slumdog Millionaire’ was shot in this township, the potters, embroiderers, recyclers, bakers, papad-makers contributed US$1 billion to the economy? Not a slum in the traditional sense of the word, Dharavi has churches, mosques, temples to cater to all communities, hospitals and clinics and above all, schools with two shifts which is a testimony to the growing respect for education among the so-called slum-dwellers.

Meeting point: Mahim Station near the footbridge at 10:00am.

3 hours tour – lots of walking so wear comfortable shoes. Will have to share taxis once during the tour.
