Mumbai is a city that continues to fascinate locals and tourists alike: there’s always a breathtaking view waiting somewhere. In order to celebrate the city’s impressive skyline and 62-km coastline, the government has built platforms across Mumbai and plans to develop several more.
Last month, BMC inaugurated the swanky new viewing deck at Dadar Chowpatty, which offers unhindered views of the Bandra-Worli Sea Link and Arabian Sea. Called Mata Ramabai Ambedkar Smriti Viewing Deck, it’s also a common space for gathering that can accommodate up to 300 people at once.

At 285-ft, the gallery looks out to unmatched views of the Queen’s Necklace and South Mumbai and can be used by 40 people at once. (Source)
The government plans to build viewing platforms for the 40-odd outfalls in Mumbai, looking out to breathtaking city-and-sea vistas. The immediate next ones can be expected at Girgaum Chowpatty and near P D Hinduja Hospital.
