The Western Suburbs consists of the Bandra (queen of the suburbs), Khar, Santacruz, Juhu, Vile Parle, and Andheri suburbs of Mumbai (Bombay). This article does not include the suburbs of Northwest Mumbai among the Western Suburbs, which are covered in a separate article.
These are some of the oldest suburbs of the city. In particular, Bandra has existed as a separate town almost as long as Mumbai. The area started its history as a bunch of fishing villages. Then it became home to a Christian population that set up its churches, orphanages, and monasteries. It later turned into a place where Mumbai's beautiful people live, a status that it holds to this day. It is a very cosmopolitan place and does not have the rundown look of the other suburbs. It still has a lot of old bungalows.
