Bombay is now called Mumbai, which is the financial capital of India. Mumbai is located on the western side of India and is home to the Indian film Industr called Bollywood. It also has one of the largest 'slum' area out near the international Airport where over 1 million people live. It is also home to the Taj Hotal - a very elegant hotel that was bombed and set alight a few years ago. Lovely place to visit.

Bombay was the Portugese name for the bay they landed on when they came to India. Mumbai is the Maharashtian ( I not too sure if I spell that right) name . They are the local people living there. That is why is was changed back.
