Mumbai Sightseeing- The Bandra-Worli Sea link bridge, Mumbai


During a trip to Mumbai in 2013, we decided to go sight seeing one morning. We asked a taxi driver who came to pick us up at the hotel to show us a few places. The Bandra-Worli Sea link bridge was one among the places he took us to. 

Here are some pictures of the Bandra-Worli Sea link bridge.
