Mumbai (formerly called Bombay) is a densely populated city on India’s west coast. A financial center, it's India's largest city. On the Mumbai Harbour waterfront stands the iconic Gateway of India stone arch, built by the British Raj in 1924. Offshore, nearby Elephanta Island holds ancient cave temples dedicated to the Hindu god Shiva. The city's also famous as the heart of the Bollywood film industry.
Both English and Hindi are spoken widely throughout India and most people understand at least some of either language, or a blend of both known as “Hinglish.” Marathi is the official language of Mumbai and the state of Maharashtra.
