Mumbai: Mount Mary I

I was staying in the Bandra suburb of Mumbai, a stone's throw away from the Basilica of Our Lady of the Mount, commonly known as Mount Mary. This is a popular pilgrimage site and like Haji Ali it is visited by all religions alike, but especially Christians and Hindus, who come there to ask favours of the Virgin Mary. The church, or rather the statue of the Virgin inside it, is linked to miracles, so it's no wonder it is popular.
