Bandra Talao is also popularly known as Swami Vivekananda Talao due to its proximity to S.V Road. It’s at a walking distance from Bandra Railway station on the west side. Its a small lake which is covered with steel railings on 3 sides so that visitors do not venture in the water. The side facing the S.V road has the entrance with palm trees planted and provision made for seating. You will also see people fishing in the lake, however I did not see anyone actually catching a fish.
The lake is currently being looked after by Municipal corporation of Greater Mumbai. You will also find large number of pigeons coming here to receive the free food which is provided by people.
