Bandra-Worli Sea Link, with Worli skyline

Worli (ISO: Varaḷī, [ʋəɾ(ə)ɭiː]) is a locality in central Mumbai in Maharashtra, India. It is one of the four peninsulas of Mumbai with the others being Colaba, Bandra and Malabar Hill. The sea connects it with Bandra via the Bandra-Worli Sea Link. Historic spellings include Warli, Worlee, Varli, and Varel.[1] Originally Worli was a separate island, one of the Seven Islands of Bombay which were ceded by the Portuguese to England in 1661; it was linked up with the other islands in the 19th century.

In the 1990s, a group of terrorists attacked a building in Worli as well as major buildings in the city.[2]
