Colaba is one of the most visited places in Mumbai. It is near to the Fort area which has its fair share of history. Frequently visited by tourists, shoppers, diners, and so on. The southern area of the Colaba coast is seen in the photograph which is a Naval defense area today, except with permission, it is out of bounds.
