Names in Bombay ...

Returning for a moment to the beloved metropolis, here's a fascinating post on the origins of the names of various localities in Bombay. [Via Desipundit.]
Babulnath: There used to be a huge plantation of ‘Babul’ or acacia arabica in this area, which is at the foothills of Malabar Hill. The deity of the temple built later (Shiva) also took this name and is a well-visited place of worship and is located very close to Chowpatty.
Live and learn!
