Khotachiwadi: Heritage Village in Mumbai

Khotachiwadi is a captivating village surrounded by the busy streets of Girgaum in South Mumbai. Buildings in the neighbourhood display the strong Portuguese influence of the mid-sixteenth century, at the time when it was a part of vast coconut plantations of the then Girgaum wadi. The module examines the hybrid nature of the overall architecture with its Goan-Portugese influences, the co-existence of diverse communities within the region and the impact of rapidly urbanising surroundings upon the precinct.
