“A ountain out of a molehill”
Reviewed 26 November 2013

Have never understood what there is to see. I guess not much in Mumbai so all tourists are taken here- crowded viewing, no parking and a large open air laundry!

“Lots of clothes!”
Reviewed 23 November 2013

Not sure how they keep everything so organised, 6-Sigma should do a study to see if the come close to the tiffin-wallahs in accuracy! Eye-opening to see how labor intensive it is to actually wash clothes by hand.

“The 'other' point of view!”
Reviewed 21 November 2013

When I travel I always try to go to places where I can meet 'real' people, I mean, the person on the streets, the real country, not just monuments, museums, churches and the lot! Dhobi Ghat in Mumbai is one of those places where you can see the hard life of people who wash tons of clothes, the interesting techniques used.
