Mumbai, India’s ‘City of Dreams’ is a city unlike any other. Home to some of the world’s most powerful billionaires alongside Asia’s largest slum, with one of the world’s busiest train systems along with historic cave temples dating back 2000 years ago, Mumbai is a city whose extremes and depth are very hard to capture. From its energetic street vendors, diverse pedestrians and historic buildings, to its chaotic trains and traffic – these Instagram photos reveal the very essence of Mumbai.
