This is the Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation building in South Mumbai. The architecture is noteworthy. The foundation stone for the offices of the Bombay Municipal Corporation was laid on December 9, 1884, by the Viceroy, Lord Ripon. The Gothic design by F. W. Stevens was selected over the Indo-Saracenic design submitted by R. F. Chisholm. Completed in 1893, the building has a 255 feet tall tower.


  1. I would have guessed this building housed a church of some kind.

  2. A great photo. One would not assume a municipal office just from looking at this building.

    Thanks for visiting my NorthBayPhoto blog.

  3. Nice looking building but more importantly a very well captured shot!
