About Fort

Once the heart of Mumbai, India, the suburb of Fort is now a central business district of the city, a significant commercial hub and home to various bank headquarters and financial services popular with international workers. The name of the district is a constant reminder of its history, as this was once the city itself and built around the British defence structure, Fort George, which sadly no longer exists. Fort now acts as the core financial area of Mumbai, containing the Reserve Bank of India, Bombay Stock Exchange and numerous state governmental administration offices making it a corporate hub yet important and culturally interesting part of the city.

Visitors can soak up the atmosphere of Fort simply by walking its streets, appreciating the bustle and activity and witnessing the impressive surrounding architecture, made up of huge skyscrapers and urban lights. There are various local features for visitors to discover in Fort, such as massive commercial shopping centres and more local market streets, particularly along Dadabhai Naoroji Road, famous for its sales of books and electronic goods. Visitors can also witness some existing parts of the old British fortifications in the area, try the local cuisine, especially the seafood which is a local favourite of the area and watch a typical Bollywood film at the New Excelsior cinema. For cultural sightseeing, visitors can explore the local museums revealing the history of ancient India, national artwork and medieval artefacts, or discover religious sites, including churches, synagogues and the oldest Parsi Temple in Mumbai dating back to 1790, called The Agiary.

The main airport serving Mumbai is Chhatrapati Shivaji International Airport, and from here visitors can easily reach the suburb of Fort, most easily by taxi. There are also trains and buses available, and visitors can connect to other cities in India via the main railway station and bus terminal, which link to South Mumbai and the area of Fort. Traffic in the district is very busy, but visitors can also rent a car to navigate the local area.

During the 18th Century, Fort was the heart of Mumbai, and the city itself grew out from this central point defined by Fort George, the defence for British colonists who occupied the area. Today it is a protected area of urban development and continues to grow as a major financial district of India.
