This event is held in a crescent-shaped area called Mahatma Gandhi road, that citizens of Mumbai still refer to this area as Kala Ghoda. This has concentration of museums, art galleries, educational institutions, boutiques and restaurant, and what is arguably the finest array of heritage buildings in the city, and has emerged as an arts precinct and a prominent cultural centre, thronged by visitors and tourists from all over the world.
