Building Bombay

A guide around Mumbai's heritage precinct

Our ongoing research and drawings for the Storycity project keep us busy at Kahani. In 2016 we published Building Bombay, a guide to 25 buildings in the Fort neighbourhood in South Mumbai.

With the recent rise in the popularity of heritage walks, we decided to try our hand at creating a practical walking map. The resulting illustrated pamphlet carries practical information and commentary about each of the highlights in the guide. Supported by historical drawings of the city and background notes, our intention with this publication is to introduce people to the city's heritage in an easy, attractive way that requires no prior knowledge of architecture to appreciate the buildings.
