Jehangir Art Gallery Overview

Ranked 81 of 769 sightseeing in Mumbai

Jehangir Art Gallery is situated behind the Prince of Wales Museum at Kala Ghoda, in South Mumbai. Built in 1952, this mansion was founded by Sir Cowasji Jehangir on being constantly urged by K. K. Hebbarand and Dr. Homi Bhabha. It was designed by G.M.Bhuta for G.M.Bhuta & Associates, while the building was designed by Durga Bajpai. The history of this mammoth institution is linked with the renaissance of Indian art.

In the present time, the gallery is managed by the Bombay Art Society. It has four exhibition halls and serves as both an auditorium and an art gallery. The complex also encompasses the country’s oldest antique dealer called the Netasons. Furthermore, a popular cafe of Samovar representing 70's socialist culture is also housed here. Jehangir Art Gallery has been featured in the Bollywood movie ‘Chhoti si baat’.

Tourists can reach Jehangir Art Gallery by boarding trains or buses, or by hiring taxis or autos from elsewhere in the city.
