Sassoon Docks

#2024wish Sassoon Docks is one of the oldest and largest fish markets in Mumbai, India. Located in Colaba, near the southern tip of Mumbai, Sassoon Docks has been a vital hub for the city's fishing industry for over a century. Built in 1875, Sassoon Docks was named after Sir Albert Abdullah David Sassoon, a prominent philanthropist and member of the influential Sassoon family. The docks serve as a major landing point for fishing boats returning with their catch from the Arabian Sea. Sassoon Docks is a bustling and vibrant place, especially during the early morning hours when fishermen bring in their hauls and vendors gather to sell fresh seafood. Visitors to Sassoon Docks can witness the lively atmosphere of the fish market, observe fish auctions, and experience the sights and sounds of Mumbai's maritime culture. In addition to being a commercial hub, Sassoon Docks also attracts photographers, artists, and tourists interested in capturing the vibrant scenes and unique character of Mumbai's fishing industry. It offers a fascinating glimpse into the daily lives and livelihoods of the city's fishing community. #localguides I wish to visit Germany in 2024
