Hanging Gardens

Hanging Gardens, Mumbai, in India, are terraced gardens perched at the top of Malabar Hill, on its western side, just opposite the Kamala Nehru Park. Also known as Ferozeshah Mehta Gardens, they provide lovely sunset views over the Arabian Sea. The park was laid out in the early 1880s over Bombay's main reservoir, some say to cover the water from the potentially contaminating activity of the nearby Towers of Silence.

These are not to be confused with the Hanging Gardens of Babylon.
