Malabar Hill is a residential area in the Indian city of Mumbai (formerly known as Bombay).  This part of Mumbai was formerly owned by the Keyi family, who were forced to donate it to the East India Company.  It later became an exclusive, upmarket area.  The houses here are among the most expensive in the world.
