#MendhamsPoint by Khaki Tours
Just outside the southern gates of the ‘Bombay Fort’ was the earliest English graveyard called Mendham’s Point. From this Land’s End, one could see the Colaba island at a distance. In a series of reclamations in the 19th and 20th century, which included the Colaba Causeway, the area transformed into one of the most upmarket precinct of the city.
