Dadar (w), Mumbai -
Dadar – One of the most iconic heritage near Dadar market is Dadar Kabutar Khana. The famous Kabutar Khana is in dishevelled condition nowadays. The tiles adjacent to railings are broken. From past many days, water is clogging inside causing the bad smell. Four to five drums have been placed for the pigeons to drink.
