HISTORY OF BOMBAY

HISTORY OF BOMBAY

HISTORY OF BOMBAY
Bombay, now known as Mumbai, is home to around 10 million people. It is a thriving cosmopolitan, multi-cultural city, and is the centre of India’s entertainment industry.
Mumbai has been growing for five hundred years, even though it was built on what initially looked like very weak foundations.

At first there were just seven islands separated by swamps: the land was dangerous and unhealthy. A thousand years ago the islands were part of the Magadhan empire. Later they belonged to the Silhara family and in 1343 they became part of the lands of the Sultan of Gujarat.

In 1534, the Portuguese captured the islands and established a trading centre (or ’factory’) there. The Portuguese called the place Bom Bahia, meaning ’the good bay’, which the English pronounced Bombay.

This trading place slowly grew, with local people trading products such as silk, muslin, chintz, onyx, rice, cotton and tobacco. By 1626, there was a great warehouse, a friary, a fort and a ship building yard. There were also new houses for the general population, and mansions for the wealthy.
