Mumbai - Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj Terminus


Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj Terminus (CSMT) is a historic railway station in Mumbai and also a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
Designed by Frederick William Stevens, an English architectural engineer who worked for the British colonial government in India, this station was built in 1887.

Today CSMT is one of the busiest railway stations in India. It serves as a terminal for long-distance trains and also for commuter trains.
BTW, there are many railway stations in Mumbai.

Previously (in a WS) I have already shown some pictures of its interior (the hall with the ticket offices).
Its old name was Victoria Terminus since it was built to commemorate the golden jubilee of Queen Victoria.

A bit to my surprise this station seems to be the most photographed building after the Taj Mahal (in Agra).
