Banganga Tank, Mumbai

Malabar Hill
India's insider take:

Even as housing prices atop Malabar Hill approach those of Manhattan, the sleepy temple area at its base appears untouched by the strains of modern life. Its 17 temples overlook a tranquil water tank, painstakingly built over 400 years, and finished in the 13th century. The smell of burning incense sticks and fresh jasmine wafts through the air, while strains of priestly chanting echo in the dense silence. Tours are available, but this is really just a place to get lost, wander, and take in the mellow vibe. The crowds descend here every winter during the Banganga Festival, when maestros of Hindustani classical music give open-air performances against the backdrop of the temple town.
