1. Explore The Wodehouse Church in Colaba
The Wodehouse Church in Colaba, also called Cathedral of the Holy Name, was built in 1902 and is known for its beautiful geometric designs and interiors. It is one of the most renowned churches in Mumbai and has a grand Christmas celebration every year. Even if you're unable to attend the midnight mass, a visit to this place is a must!
2. Grab a Yule Log and other Christmassy desserts at Moner Bistro & Dessert Bar.
Moner Bistro & Dessert Bar serves exquisite desserts and their Christmas special Bûche de Nöel looks almost too good to eat!
3. Take a trip to Cheap Jacks for presents
While there are many shops on Hill Road that are filled with Christmas decor and gifts, Cheap Jack has been my go-to for ages. It is one of those "there-is-something-for-everyone" kind of stores where you just walk in and end up buying Christmas presents for people you don't even like.
4. Take a walk through Ranwar Village.
Ranwar, an East Indian village, is how you find calm in the midst of a very chaotic Bandra. With its Portuguese-inspired architecture and rich history, the Ranwar village, on any day, is bliss. However, during Christmas, the exquisitely decorated narrow lanes of this picturesque village almost make it seem like a fairytale.
5. And finally, go see the lights at Bandra Reclamation.
I know that Bandra lights up during Christmas but Bandra Reclamation REALLY lights up during Christmas! Go see the lights and feel the joy. Merry Christmas!
