Our World- Salt Pans of Mumbai
Mumbai was a fishing and salt making village when it was gifted in dowry to the Portuguese princess who married a British king 300 years ago. The original natives of Mubai still fish and make salt on the outskirts of the great city. Sea water is collects in these pans and gets dried by the sun, leaving the salt behind. Many aquatic birds hunt in these pans for the salty morsels. If you click on the picture above, you can see the birds clearly. The salt makers follow their ancient tradition to make these geometrical patterns.
You can see plenty of interesting images of our worldhere.
