I am a true Blue mumbaikar - born here and stayed here all my life but this was the time I got to step inside the raj Bhavan gates. Thanks to the initiative taken by the current guv! The tour costs only Rs. 25 pp and has to booked online. There are limited seats available - earlier 10 per day and now 25 I think with the introduction of a battery vehicle. The tour starts at 6 am and gets over at 8.30 am. The winter is the best time to visit due to the pleasant weather and sunrise is after 7 am. One can even see the banquet hall where guests are entertained. The guv house and swearing in hall are out of reach. The sun rise point has been developed and well maintained. Due to the morning mist we could not clearly view the bldgs in Nariman Point. We saw a few peacocks strutting in the lawns. The PRO met us at the last point to give a history of the colonial bldg. we were served tea and biscuits too and the staff was very courteous. I would love to visit every year in different seasons. The view is too good with sea on 3 sides.

The Governor of Maharashtra has opened the official residence ( Raj Bhavan) for visitors and tourists to view sunrise.
One needs to book online in advance. Due to security reasons , only 10 visitors are allowed per day.
The visit is from 6 am to 9 am except Mondays and state government holidays.

The visit has a tour guide who explains the history of Raj Bhavan, governors prior to India gaining independence and the importance of the Governor in the state .
The entire estate is more than 40 acres, only certain parts are allowed which include the banquet hall of the Governor and the designated walking path , including the residence, office areas,
The ' high point' of the trip is the sunrise over Mumbai , with the sun rising over Marine Drive. There is also a yoga point, for interested visitors to perform yoga while watching sunrise .
The tour ends in about 3 hours, we had the PRO ( Public Relations Officer) of the Governor address us and explain the relevance. Highly useful and appreciated !
Note - no Cameras( SLR) are allowed, Photo id is needed at the time of booking ( Passport, Aadhar etc)

The governor's house i.e. Raj Bhavan has been opened for visitors for a nominal entry fee. This is a guided tour in which they take you to see the sunrise with a beautiful view. You can relax, do yoga, or meditate with the sun rising from behind Marine Drive. There were some snacks and tea after the sunrise. We were fortunate enough to have bumped into the PA of the Governor who enlightened us about the history of Mumbai and Raj Bhavan. We were taken around the premises which are indeed majestic. Near the helipad, there is a sunset point from where we can see the sunset with no obstruction in our vision and the sun appears to drown in the ocean. We were told that they intend to open it for visitors during sunset too. Another exciting thing there was that peacocks keep roaming in the area.
Lastly, reaching here is very easy – if you go by train, you can get down at Grant road or Charni road and take a taxi to Raj Bhavan which is all the way to the southern tip of Mumbai. Since, many people don’t know about this, it is definitely a hidden gem and one must try it if they are in Mumbai.
