wilderness in bombay

There'as a place in bombay that is a wilderness in the city. A patch of jungle on a hill, where tigers roam and vultures circle overhead - a secret place, a forbidden garden, a burial ground, with a huge unclimbable wall all around. the people leave dead bodies at the gate, and priests creep out at night to take them in and lay them out on stone slabs under the sky for the vultures to strip to the bone.
