Inside the JJ School of Art, is a bungalow that belonged to the famous author and Nobel laureate Rudyard Kipling. In 1866, JJ School of Art was taken over by the Indian government. Kipling’s father was appointed as the dean of the institute and lived in this bungalow on the campus.

Till  2002, the heads of  JJ School of Art lived in this Bungalow. Since then, it’s been empty and now is almost in ruins. Its white and blue face is slowly fading out to a muddy brown, there are empty alcohol and plastic bottles strewn around, and no one ever goes into this house.

    1. Glad you came to know of this Bungalow from my article 🙂 … Lots to explore in Mumbai. I’m keen to see some of the Parsi joints and building … if i’m there for a while.

      1. I have been here for more than a while now, and yet not seen so many places. I need to get out and explore the delights of colonial Mumbai. Join for one of those walks that they organise from time to time.


  1. Sad for what it has turned into. It looks so pretty, alive, and kicking in the artwork 🙂 While it’s carefully done to give it a historic look!
