Mumbai has a 66-million-year old secret – Gilbert Hill, which is in the heart of the city. This ancient rock can only be found in three places around the world, one of which is Andheri. This 200-feet monolith of black basalt was a lot more visible two decades ago. What was a mammoth piece of rock at that time, is now shadowed by mammoth buildings instead. This black basalt rock has been classified as a Grade II heritage structure. A flight of 180 steps takes you to the top of the hill, giving you panoramic views of suburban Bombay. The hilltop is also home to two temples. Explore how geography, history and cultural heritage come together in this walk.
