Hanging Gardens


Pherozeshah Mehta Gardens, popularly known as the Hanging Gardens, are terraced gardens sitting atop the Malabar Hill, in the city of Mumbai. Located just opposite the Kamala Nehru Park, the garden offers a tremendous view of the setting sun over the Arabian Sea, and is littered with several hedges carved into the shapes of animals.

The park was founded in the year 1881, before being renovated in the year 1921. The Hanging Gardens were created over the main reservoir of Mumbai, the reason according to some being to cover the water from the contamination caused by the adjacent Towers of Silence.

The Pherozeshah Mehta Gardens were named after Pherozeshah Mehta, an eminent barrister of his time. The garden offers a welcome respite from the hustle and bustle of Mumbai, besides being extremely popular with joggers and evening walkers.
