Lands End is a peninsular strip of land that juts into the Arabian sea, with a fort at its tip and a hill that comes below the vista of the fort.
In 1640, the Portuguese built a fort known as Castella de Aguada (Portuguese: "Fort of the Waterpoint"), also known as the Bandra Fort. It It was built to serve as a watchtower a watchtower overlooking Mahim Bay, the Arabian Sea and the southern island of Mahim.
In 1850, a Parsi businessman and philanthropist, Sir Byramjee Jeejeebhoy bought the entire area of Lands End. Byramjee spent his personal fortune to develop the area. He built a road, connecting Lands End with the rest of Bandra. This road is known as Byramjee Jeejeebhoy Road or BJ Road. He also built a promenade and sea-facing wall on the western side of Lands End. Later, in 1865 Byramjee built his residence on top of the Hill at Lands End. He lived in this house along with his son Nanabhoy Jeejeebhoy (who built the famous Nana Chowk).
