Four days before the start of Mumbai's 10-day Diwali holiday, this LJ road lane (also known as the ‘Kawli Wadi Street’) between Mahim and Matunga, next to the Citylight Cinema, is prepared with stalls and lantern collections. Ask anyone in the area about Kandil Galli, Mumbai, and they will quickly point you in the direction of this vibrant lantern market in Mumbai.
