Mumbai’s new ‘garden under the flyover’ has us wanting for more

Flyovers have long been a favourite for depiction of crime scenes, secret hideouts and whatnot. All that is about to change, with the recently inaugurated garden under the Tulpule flyover on Dr Ambedkar Road in Matunga, Mumbai. Called the Nanalal D Mehta Garden, its a Rs 5-crore project that has been delayed since 2014. With the monsoons having hit the city, the timing was just about perfect to open it for the public, who can now jog even in the rains.

Better late than never, we say. The garden has a childrens park and a 600-metre-long jogging track which is shaped like the Narmada river. Special mention must be made of the One Matunga group of citizens who championed the cause and despite political toil, made it happen. We cant wait for this stunning idea to be emulated throughout the city.

Our suggestion: Go at night for a stunning, truly one-of-a-kind view of the city.
