ⓘ Charni Road

It is believed that when the British Government raised a grazing tax on people bringing their cattle to graze on the grass at the Camp Maidan now called Azad Maidan, Jamshedjee Jeejeebhoy purchased the grasslands near Thakurdwar out of his own funds and opened those grounds to the locals to graze their cattle for free. As the Marathi word for grazing is "charne", the area came to be known as Charni. and thence, the road beside it, as the Charni Road. According to another source, the word is a corruption of "Chendni", a locality in the Thane-Koliwada area. Many people originally from Chendni migrated to south Mumbai to the area which is known today as Charni Road.

In 1884, sir Adamji Peerbhoy 1845-1913, a well-known philanthropist from Mumbai, India, built several properties in new kabrastan cemetery / burial), Masjid, sanatorium, and Amanbai charitable hospital later known as Saifee hospital on Charney road opposite the train station. He wanted to serve as a refuge for travelers, the poor, or needy to rest, use the mosque for prayer, or to the hospital if they need it. After sir Adamjee Peerbhoys death, his grandson Akbar, against the wishes of the family, who turned the properties into trust. The family resisted the change, but Akbar had a great influence.

He was the son of Abdul Hussein Peerbhoy, who was the second of seven children of sir Adamjee Peerbhoy, who had engineered and build the Matheran hill Railway. Property from the hands of the Peerbhoy family and into the hands of Trustees. The Trustees were later modified leader Syedna of the Dawoodi Bohras and new Trustees conveyed the property Syedna. The building was constructed for the benefit of the poor and needy. The property still exists on the road Charney and still under the name of sir Adamji Peerbhoy.
