HIDDEN AMIDST the soaring skyscrapers of Malabar Hill is the small settlement of Banganga, set around a sacred tank. According to legend, llama, hero of the Rarnayana pausing here while on his way to rescue his abducted wife Sita, shot an arrow into the ground and a spring gushed forth. This is the origin of the tank, and devotees take regular ritual dips in it. The site has several temples – the Jabreshwar Mahadeo, at the tank’s corner, is the prettiest, while the Walkeshwar Temple, built in the 18th century, has a linga said to have been built by Rama himself. Around the tank and temples are rest houses (clharamsalas) for pilgrims.
