Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj Terminus, Mumbai Reviews
Always crowded place. Station is having very good facilities inside. Restaurants are also available inside. so getting food inside is easy. Due to heavy rush staff check randomly passenger details. magnetic doors are all along so everybody is thoroughly checked. Staff is good and help if you want and guide as well. ATM and other shops are also available inside.
A historic railway station & UNESCO World Heritage Site (130 years old). Headquarters of the Central Railways. Delight to watch under night lights. Building architecture is of Victorian Gothic style. 18 platforms all total. Platforms 1-7 are for local trains and Platform 8-18 are for long route trains. Air-conditioned dormitories available, 58 (Male) & 20 (Female) beds. One of the busiest Station in the country.
Excellent world heritage buildings well maintained. Still copes with peak hour traffic well enough. The new extension near platform 18 has a lot of parking space. Now buggies are also available for those who need it for carrying babies and St Citizens.
All amenities available. Good quality of Food, Beverages at prices affordable to common Indian man. Spacious, still overloaded with crowd as it is a Financial capital of India. Superb architecture built by British rulers in 1887. Even after more than 125 years, not a single marble has lost its shine. Wide platforms make it easy to board the train.
Great architectural monument. Visionary railway station of mumbai. I suppose more than a million people must be travelling through this station on daily basis. What a wonderful place to visit and admire this marvellous buildings.
