Jehangir Art Gallery


Jehangir art gallery is a temple for art lovers and for the people who worship art. The Jehangir Art Gallery is Mumbai (India)’s most famous art gallery and a tourist attraction. Renowned Parsi businessman Cowasji Jehangir donated all the cost incurred on construction of this beautiful building. Artists keep applying for displaying their works on its walls and it takes years to be able to display their work due to long waiting. It was founded by Sir Cowasji Jehangir at the urging of K. K. Hebbar and Homi Bhabha. It was built in 1952. Managed by the Bombay Art Society, the entire cost of this mansion was donated by Cowasji Jehangir.This gallery is situated at Kala Ghoda, behind the Prince of Wales Museum, in South Mumbai near the Gateway of India. And has four exhibition halls. The gallery was designed by G.M.Bhuta for G.M. Bhuta & Associates. A mammoth institution in itself, its history is linked with the renaissance of Indian art. The complex also has the popular cafe of Samovar, which is reminiscent of the 70's socialist culture. It also houses Natesans, the country's oldest licensed antique dealers and the icing on the cake is that even the entry is free for the public.
