Historic Site · Hidden Gem · Tourist Spot
Escape the hubbub of a busy metropolis at Khotachiwadi, a tiny hamlet with colorful Portuguese heritage. Founded in the 18th century, this picturesque village remains one of the oldest parts of Mumbai. As you walk down narrow lanes lined with old, Portuguese-style houses and wrapped in aromas of Konkan and Goan cuisine, you'll feel like you've been transported back in time. Admire arched doorways, wooden verandas, and intricate columns. Take notice of a small Catholic chapel, decorated with wall paintings depicting Nativity scenes, erected in 1899 by the survivors of a plague. To visit Khotachiwadi and get the most from your holiday in Mumbai, create itinerary details personal to you using our Mumbai online sightseeing planner.
