Appeal for information on Parsi Palaces
Akshay Chavan July 2 at 9:00pm
Hi Sir Mehernosh
I am currently doing research on the “Parsi Palaces of Bombay”. The most beautiful palaces in Bombay were built by Parsi royalty like Dubash, Petit and Jeejeebhoy families.
I am looking for information on “Petit Hall”, one of the most beautiful and expensive houses ever built in Mumbai. It is said that when Sir Dinshaw Petit offered it to Maharashtra Govt at Raj Bhawan, they refused saying that they could not afford to maintain such a grand palace!!!!
Do you know anyone who can help me out with information on this palace? Any of your parsi friends?
There is a book called “Zorastrian Trapistery” By any chance do you have that book?
