  • Love this railway station,,, one of the very old stations in India... connects local trains and connect to almost big cities and towns of India in all directions.. walkable distance to India Gate, excellent architecture and maintaining in excellent condition .. you can spend 1 hour to understand and enjoy this station before you step out busy road just outside. Bombay Stock Exchange and all major financial institutions are located nearby. You see very cosmopolitan life style in outside ... excellent place and love to visit again.

  • Greatest railway station in India serving as a terminal for both long-distance trains and commuter trains. And deserves to be a world heritage site. The Victorian architecture reminds of the old grand era. It's almost always crowded, but I think it's still convenient for commuters as the crowd is always on the move, unlike other stations where the crowd just keeps increasing in one place. There are many ticket counters too, so getting a ticket is relatively easy.Amazing experience...

  • Pretty big station. Cleanliness is good, thanks to support staff. Crowded but Mumbai and it's population, cannot really complain. Washrooms can be much cleaner. Multiple food options available. Connectivity is great from here. Just need polite staff on station 😉

  • The first railway station in India built by the British some 150 years ago, this Victorian masterpiece not only serves as an architectural beauty, but is the hub of the railway system feeding both local and long distance trains. Extremely busy throughout the day bustling with passengers and tourists alike, this building attains a different splendour at night when the lights adds to its beauty. Inside the terminal humongous fans rotate to provide some relief from the heat. Announcements are made in not only local languages, but also English making it convenient for foreigners finding their way.

  • 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 phacet of Indian commuters.
