I think Mumbai is the only city with something worthy of being called a skyline, though Mumbai's skyline is far from impressive.

Also, this is IMO the wrong section. It should probably be in the "Urban Hall of Fame" section.

True. Is there a skyline in Navi Mumbai? And are they considered two completely separate cities?

Navi Mumbai has some tall buildings, but nothing worthy of being called a skyline. Its considered a separate city.

The pictures posted of the cities are quite outdated, at least as far Indian cities are concerned. As others already pointed out, Mumbai would have something which can be called a skyline if you look at the recent pictures.
