Really? This is a rate the skyline, not rate the gap between the rich and poor. With that said, this is my first time to go to Mumbai's thread and I was pleasantly surprised how good the skyline was and the colonial buildings as well.

Best Arabian Sea breeze & emerging bombay skyline viewpoint IMO.

Have a feeling this will be a global top 5 skyline in 10-20 years.

Among several urban areas, I have extensively studied and visited Mumbai several times; its urban area has 35 major identifiable skylines that are linked via dense mid-rises.

A problem is the quality and volume of aerial photos of Mumbai urban area, as aerial photography has been illegal in India due to security concerns, India being one of the few countries in the world in modern times that's surrounded by hostile neighboring nations since 1947.

Here's the list of major skylines:-


South Mumbai: the older Downtown

(1) Apollo Bunder

(2) Colaba

(3) Cuffe Parade - Nariman Point

(4) Fort - Ballard Estate

(5) Marine Drive - Malabar Hill - Khetwadi - Girgaum

(6) Cumballa Hill - Breach Candy


Central Mumbai: the newer Downtown

(7) Worli

(8) Tardeo - Byculla - Mahalaxmi - Lower Parel

(9) Prabhadevi - Dadar West - Mahim

(10) Dadar East


West Mumbai

(11) Bandra West - Khar

(12) Santacruz - Juhu - Vile Parle


North-West Mumbai

(13) Andheri West - Versova

(14) Andheri East

(15) Jogeshwari


North-East Mumbai

(16) Powai

(17) Kanjur Marg - Bhandup - Mulund


North Mumbai

(18) Kandivli

(19) Malad

(20) Borivli

(21) Dahisar


East Mumbai

(22) Bandra East - Kurla

(23) Chembur

(24) Ghatkopar


Mumbai's contiguous Urban Area

(25) Thane` City

(26) Vashi

(27) Nerul - Kopar Khairne

(28) Belapur

(29) Kharghar

(30) Panvel

(31) Mira Road - Bhayander

(32) Vasai

(33) Virar

(34) Kalyan - Dombivli - Ambernath

(35) Bhiwandi
