MumbaiMumbai formerly known as Bombay is the capital of the Indian state of Maharashtra. Mumbai is also the commercial and entertainment capital of India. Mumbai is located on the Salsette Island, in the west coast of India.
Present Mumbai was originally an archipelago of seven islands. Artefacts found near Kandivali, in northern Mumbai indicate that these islands had been inhabited since the Stone Age. Documented evidence of human habitation dates back to 250 BCE, when it was known as Heptanesia (Ptolemy) (Ancient Greek: A Cluster of Seven Islands). In the 3rd century BCE, the islands formed part of the Maurya Empire, ruled by the Buddhist emperor, Așoka.
The climate of the city, being in the tropical zone, and near the Arabian Sea, may be broadly classified into two main seasons. They are the humid season and the dry season. The humid season is characterized by high humidity. The dry season, is characterized by moderate levels of humidity and warm to cool weather.
The multiple families of Indian cuisine are characterized by their sophisticated and subtle use of many spices and herbs. Each family of this cuisine is characterized by a wide assortment of dishes and cooking techniques. Though a significant portion of Indian food is vegetarian, many traditional Indian dishes also include chicken, goat, lamb, fish, and other meats.
