About Jehangir Art Gallery

The Jehangir Art Gallery is most famous art gallery and a tourist attraction in Mumbai. It was built in 1952 and was founded by Sir Cowasji Jehangir at the urging of K. K. Hebbar and Homi Bhabha. This gallery is managed by Bombay Art Society and is situated at Kala Ghoda. It is behind the Prince of Wales Museum and has four exhibition halls. A mammoth institution in itself, its history is directly 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. Don't be surprised if a world-famous painter is sitting next to you, sipping tea. Entry is free.
