  • One would think why anyone would want to visit a railway station of a new unexplored city and that to in the night. My massi told me that the best time to see CST is in the evening. And people, this architectural landmark didn’t look like a station to me at all. It looked like a fort, a fort presenting the city. The lighting were glorifying the beauty more. It is the finest railway station I have ever seen. It was magnificently lit at night.

  • Crowd. Busy. ...... still enchanting. India's one of the well known destinations. Earlier time known after the name of Queen Victoria of England. The most precious and prestigious locations of India are within reach. The best facet of Indian commuters.
