Etching its footprints on the sands of time, bristling in one of the mist idyllic surroundings, the Raj Bhavan complex in Mumbai sits in its solitary splendour, contemplating the changing moods of nature on one hand and watching the colourful mask of bustling metropolis on the other.
The Raj Bhavan, Mumbai, located in plush Malabar Hill easily qualifies as one of the most impressive estates in the country. The majestic official residence of the Governor since 1885 commands the respect and awe of its visitors and reminds them of its character as the political nerve centre.
There are two more Raj Bhavans in Maharashtra, one in Pune and the other in Nagpur. The Governor also has a small summer residence in the hill resort of Mahabaleshwar. This book is the first ever attempt to document the beautiful buildings of the Raj Bhavans of Maharashtra, which are now considered a national heritage, and their verdant surroundings through an array of captivating images. Full of beautiful photos accompanied with small descriptions of the places clicked, this coffee table book is a delightful read and a must read for all.
