Parsee place of worship at Bhikha Behram Well, MumbaiBhika Behram Well is a freshwater well dug in 1725 by a Parsi named Bhikaji who had come from Bharuch to Mumbai. The well is situated at Churchgate in Greater Mumbai District, at one end of Cross Maidan, near the Central Telegraph Office. The well and its stone canopy are decorated with stained glass. Parsis treat the well and its surroundings as sacred because it contains fresh water even though it is close to the sea. Parsis pray here with their foreheads pressed against the stone rim. It is said that if anyone lit a lamp near the well, all his wishes would be fulfilled.
