Mumbai derived both its present name and past name of ‘Bombay’, from its earliest inhabitants and its strategic location. The Koli community, who are among the original inhabitants of the city, worshipped the goddess Mumba Devi, giving the city its name of Mumbai. The name ‘Bombay’ on the other hand, is believed to have originated from the Portuguese phrase ‘Bom Bahia’, which means ‘Beautiful Bay’. Mumbai has always been a trailblazer. India’s first airport, the Juhu Aerodrome, was set up here in 1928; the first 5-star hotel – Taj Mahal Hotel was opened in the city in 1903, the first railway terminal was constructed in South Mumbai and was called Bori Bunder, now the site of Chhatrapati Shivaji Terminus. The first public bus service also commenced in Mumbai, with the establishment of BEST in 1926. The city also had India’s first electric rail system, which is incidentally now an outdated relic from the past.
