Mumbai, the capital city of Maharashtra state, was formerly known as Bombay. Now, it is also considered the financial and commercial capital of the country. The mega city has strong historical links, wonderful British architecture, museums, shrines, beaches and the Hindi film industry which is also known as Bollywood. The seven islands which form the metropolis were earlier home to fishing communities. For centuries, the islands were being controlled by the successive indigenous empires before being ceded to the Portuguese and later to the East India Company of Great Britain. During the mid-18th century, Bombay was reshaped with the construction of major roads and railways and subsequently it transformed into a major seaport on the Arabian Sea as we see it today. The city was renamed Mumbai in 1996. The happening city carries a vibrant and cosmopolitan culture. Be it Bollywood or Victorian-era buildings, Asia's largest slum in Dharavi or the lunchbox delivery and return system of the famous dabbawalas, every aspect of Mumbai boasts a unique identity.
