Some of these beautiful structures still exist though the maintenance and supervision are minimal, these derelict ghats are evidence of the extent of indifference towards the cities heritage with the passage of time…Architect Charles Correa had remarked "Where else in the world would you have a sacred river flowing by with majestic buildings in the backdrop?
