About Taraporewala Aquarium

The Taraporewala Aquarium in Mumbai is the vision of a Parsi philanthropist, Mr. Taraporewala, who donated a large sum of money to construct the lone aquarium in the city on Charni Road, right opposite Marine Drive. If you're a marine enthusiast, you wouldn't be disappointed! With over 100 species of fish and turtles, sharks, stingrays and small starfish, the aquarium also has seven different types of coral fish, usually found on the Lakshadweep Island. Other than fresh marine life, there is a room full of fossils, shells and preserved fish in bottles that give you a fair sense of the marine evolution over the year, especially in the Arabian Sea and the Indian Ocean. There have been talks of converting the aquarium into an oceanarium to enhance the experience of the visitors by allowing them to walk under the sea and explore the wonders of rich marine life of India.

Pro Tip: The ticket is valid for one hour from the time of purchase
