Mumbai: Haji Ali, I

I was able to take the bus directly from close to my hosts' home and step out across the road from the Shrine of the saint Haji Ali, a popular Mumbai pilgrimage site. While Haji Ali was a Muslim, his shrine is visited by people of all faiths who come to seek his blessing. It was low tide when I arrived, and I thought these little boats made an interesting contrast with the tall modern buildings across the bay.

Looking in the other direction, you could see the shrine at the end of the walkway that makes it accessible even when the tide is in.
