Matunga sits atop one of the prime locations in Mumbai. This prime central suburb has easy accessibility over the central, western and harbour suburbs of Mumbai. Geographically, Matunga is surrounded by the Sion-Dharavi belt to the North, Mahim to the North-West, GTB Nagar to the North-East, Wadala to the East and Dadar to the South making it a prominent residential as well as the commercial location in Mumbai. From temples to silk to – but of course – the land of mighty dosa, Matunga is a microcosm of South India. Other than that, Matunga also blends the cultural ethos of Parsi and Saraswat lineage giving a varied cultural blend on its platter. The mixed cultures bring-in their own traditions of food, festivities, and fashion. These all factors make Matunga an ideal destination for residential purposes.

Speaking about the advantage of the location, Navin Makhija – Managing Director, The Wadhwa Group opines, “Matunga is a centrally-located region where culture, cuisine, and heritage convene and connect seamlessly. The location offers ease of connectivity to the city's business hubs like BKC, Lower Parel, Prabhadevi, and Worli.

Matunga is the answer to a peaceful haven amidst the general stress, pollution, and chaos of the fast-paced city.
