If you set out from Regal Circle, on your left, the first building of interest that you'll come across in the Kala Ghoda Art Precinct is the Mumbai National Gallery of Modern Art. It's one of a string of national art galleries in India. The other two are in Delhi and Bangalore.
The Gallery started out as the popular Sir Cowasji Jehangir Public Hall. However, it fell into disuse and disrepair after the Jehangir Art Gallery was built. Later, 12 years of renovation works transformed it into the current bright and modern space, with semicircular galleries at different levels. Changing exhibitions by both Indian and international artists are showcased.
