Mohammadi Mahal at the Junction of Kalbadevi Road & Girgaon[ Jer Mahal ]

Mohammadi Mahal at the Junction of Kalbadevi Road & Girgaon
 



Between St Xavier’s College and Metro Cinema is a Grade-III heritage structure known
as Jer Mahal. A cluster of six buildings and an annexe, it represents the finest example
of a whole style of vernacular Indian architecture. It has even been called ‘Bombay’s
most beautiful chawl’.
A Goan cultural hub, Jer Mahal accommodates 50 Goan clubs on its premises at Dhobi
Talao. These clubs have been around for over a century; the oldest one can be traced
back to 1857. Each floor accommodates 3 to 4 clubs, along with a single kitchen and
a bathroom. Today, the clubs are characterised by broken walls, protruding cable wires
and worn out arches.
