Bori Bunder (alternatively "Bori Bandar") was one of the areas along the Eastern shore line of Mumbai, India.

Background[edit]

This place was used as a storehouse for goods imported and exported from Mumbai. In the native slang, 'Bori' mean sack and 'Bandar' means Bhandaar or store; Bandar also means port; So Bori Bunder literally means a place where sacks are stored.

Transport[edit]

In the 1850s, the Great Indian Peninsular Railway built its railway terminus in this area and the station took its name as Bori Bunder.[1]
