“The heart of Old Mumbai”
Reviewed 25 November 2013 via mobile

This area is the place where one realises that mumbai was built totally under the aegis of the Britishers. The Chhatrapati Shivaji terminus and the Bmc office together present a very European vista to the area. The whole street leading on to fort, kala ghoda, colaba, and churchgate further adds to this feeling, due to the Art Deco buildings lining it.

“Sugarcandy architecture at its best.”
Reviewed 25 November 2013

The Chhatrapati Shivaji Terminus is the headquarters of Central Railway in Mumbai, and handles long-distance ans well as suburban trains. It represents Indo-Sarasenic architecture at its very best, and should not be missed. Its architecture is graced with numerous arches, minarets, ans other embellishments. At the centre of the main building is a large clock. Right opposite ate the Times of India Building, and the headquarters of Mumbai Municipality -both very ornate and worth seeing. At the railway station, entry is only permitted to the platforms, after purchase of a ticket.

“Truly mumbai”
Reviewed 25 November 2013 via mobile

This location is one of the best old world architecture centric place to see.walking around CST,municipal corporation building, times of india building, walking towards bellies estate to take in the whole view is totally worth it. Horniman circle garden, asiatic library and many attractions are only a stones throw away.

“Beautiful building, impressive facade.”
Reviewed 23 November 2013

We didn't actually go inside but saw it from the outside, the architectural details are beautiful. It could do from a pressure washing.
