Aerial view of the iconic Oval Maidan, a public ground, which is at the heart of "The Victorian Gothic and Art Deco Ensembles of Mumbai", a UNESCO World Heritage Site. It is a witness to a unique conversation between a modernist line up of Art Deco (in background) and towering Gothic monuments (in foreground).

Art Deco marked the optimism and global cosmopolitanism of early 20th century Bombay while Gothic proclaimed the city's rise to global prominence in the late 19th century.
