Originally a marshland, it underwent a remarkable metamorphosis into an elegant residential enclave, adorned with tree-lined avenues and colonial bungalows. Matunga swiftly became a favored location for affluent British and Indian families, drawn by its luxuriant environs and serene ambiance.

Another notable establishment is Ramnarain Ruia College, a premier educational institute that has made significant contributions to academic excellence in Mumbai. Matunga is also famed for its vibrant gastronomic establishments, which have woven themselves into the fabric of its cultural tapestry. Cafe Madras, a beloved eatery serving authentic South Indian cuisine since 1940, continues to delight palates with its delectable idlis and invigorating filter coffee. Cafe Mysore and Idli House are two other iconic establishments that have withstood the test of time, offering flavorsome dishes that embody Matunga's culinary heritage. Furthermore, the neighborhood hosts various gymkhanas, pivotal in promoting sports and cultural activities. Matunga Gymkhana, established in the early 1900s, remains a bustling center for recreational and sporting pursuits.
