Dharavi is said to be the largest slum in Asia with around one million people living in 175 hectares. This district was first populated by fishermen, potters from Gujarat and Muslim tanners which produces an own economy to the district. Self urbanism follows a hierarchy of streets going from 15 meters wide to less than 1 meter wide.
You can obviously observe Dharavi’s morphology on google earth which impress by its density.
