Located in the by-lanes of Mazagaon, Matharpacady is Mumbai’s hidden secret. Vintage Portuguese homes with ornate architecture adorn this area that is home to the lesser-known East Indian community. These forgotten lanes take you back in time when colorful quaint homes quietly lay within fruiting orchards, and slow life was the only way of living. While the orchards no longer exist, you will still be charmed as this 400-year-old hamlet is full of wonderful stories from its past.
A twice fruiting mango tree, century-year-old Goan clubs, 125-year-old oratory of the saint of epidemics and infectious diseases, stories of lesser-known freedom fighters, a historic perennial well that has a unique cultural significance to the East Indians, the history of East Indians, are just some of the many interesting places and stories we share you on the tour.
