A nice place to view from outside as general public is not allowed inside. Looks beautiful in late evenings under lights.

Mantralaya is located at Nariman Point and is a good looking structure from the outside. It is the Administrative building for the government. In my school days this was known as Sachivalaya. To enter one has to get a gate pass using your identification. There is nothing touristy about it. In side it is a building with long corridors and... More

The Mantralaya was formerly known as the Sachivalaya or Secretariat. The architecture which was modern when it was first constructed in the neighbourhood of art deco buildings cannot be considered exceptional now. Nothing here for a tourist.

Mantralaya is a landmark building. Although since i stay in mumbai, i do not think i would recommend this place as a tourist attraction. but on certain special days, like maharashtra day etc, it is lit up very well
