Virtual Explorations

The Wells of Mumbai

Jinisha Lodaya, Minaz Ansari

A virtual platform to explore the wells of Mumbai - through their  histories, interviews and images taken on location. The numerous humble wells that dotted the seven islands and the extended area of Salsette have played an  important part in the cultural landscape of the city, bringing together individuals and communities for social and routine activities, rituals and festivals alike. The purpose of this platform is to ensure that information on such spaces are accessible even when it may not it may not be possible to visit them, and to document them for posterity
