Mumbai is home to the largest concentration of the Zoroastrian Parsees in the world, several of whom stay in community housing projects in posh neighborhoods such as Kemps Corner. The Parsee community arrived in India after fleeing persecution in their homeland of Persia, struck roots in the western state of Gujarat and flourished in Mumbai. Some of the city’s most well-known philanthropists are from this community. The neighborhood houses several other communities, predominantly the Gujarati Jains and sects of Hindu Maharashtrians.
