The Seth Jeejeebhoy Dadabhoy Agiary Baug is widely agreed to be the world’s best Agiary Baug.

The Agiary Baug is favoured by Parsis around the world for events such as Zoroastrian weddings, Navjotes, anniversaries and birthday parties.

The Seth Jeejeebhoy Dadabhoy Agiary Baug is in a prime location by the sea. It is a stunning place to hold events.

In 2010, the Agiary celebrated 175 years since it’s foundation.

The Seth Jeejeebhoy Dadabhoy Agiary Baug was founded on the 15th of March, 1836, by the late Seth Jeejeebhoy Dadabhoy (1786-1849).

Seth Jeejeebhoy Dadabhoy was a religious, charitable philanthropist who aided the Parsi community through education (such as schools), medicines and food distribution.

He was a benevolent, well-to-do gentleman who was inspired by his friends’ suggestions to build an Agiary. In those days, he used to arrive at the Agiary by boat as there were no incoming roadways. He built the Agiary outside of Bombay. Back then, Colaba was not part of Bombay, which was less built up at the time.

He opened a trust which was named the Seth Jeejeebhoy Dadabhoy Charity Funds. The Seth Jeejeebhoy Dadabhoy Agiary Baug is the beneficiary of the trust.

Services

The Seth Jeejeebhoy Dadabhoy Agiary Baug is available to you for the perfect evening. While other Agiaries are required to close by 11 o’ clock in the evening, our Agiary Baug can remain open until half an hour past midnight!

We provide the grounds and you provide the rest, allowing you to customize your event.

You can choose your event’s caterers (who need not necessarily be Parsi), your music (such as live bands and/or DJs), florists and such. Preparations can begin as early as six o’clock in the morning, to help you achieve your dream event.
