Gilbert Hill

Concrete buildings aren’t the only thing that rises vertically in the metropolis of Mumbai, India’s most populous city. In a suburb, north of the city, there is a huge column of basalt rising 200 feet towards the sky. Surrounded on three sides by tall apartment complexes of nearly the same height, this monolith called Gilbert Hill is practically invisible to anyone but the nearest neighbors.
