Duration: 30 minutes

Stop At: Dhobi Ghat, Dr. E. Moses Rd. near Mahalakshmi Station, Mumbai India

From the Churchgate station we take the train to Mahalaxmi station. At Churchgate station the Guest will see how the people stand in the Ticket Counter Queue and take their tickets to reach their offices. Now the guests will be escorted towards the platform to board the Local Train for Mahalaxmi Station. Local Train are the major means of transport in Mumbai. The extensive network of Railways has three lines, namely the Western Line, the Central Main Line and the Harbour Line. Being a linear city, Mumbai is totally covered by local train network.

This Tour will give you an opportunity to experience the Mumbai Local Train. We travel in First Class Compartment and will be traveling from South to North Mumbai when there is no crowd. The Guests will escorted out from the Mahalaxmi Station. The guests will proceed to the Open Air Laundry firmly known as DHOBI GHAT. A unique feature of Mumbai, the dhobi is a traditional laundryman, who will collect your dirty linen, washit, and return it neatly pressed to your doorstep. All for a pittance. The "laundries" are called "ghats": row upon row of concrete wash pens, each fitted with its own flogging stone. The clothes are soaked in sudsy water, thrashed on the flogging stones, then tossed into huge vats of boiling starch and hung out to dry. Next they are ironed and piled into neat bundles, where almost two hundred dhobis and their families work together in what has always been a hereditary occupation.

To enhance our experience further we hop on to a Black and yellow local taxi from Mahalaxmi station to Chattrapatishivaji terminus [Victoria terminus], which is a historic railway station and serves as the headquarters of the Central Railways. The station was designed by Frederick William Stevens, a consulting architect in 1887-1888, for the princely sum of 16.14 lakh rupees. The station stands as an example of 19th century railway architectural marvels for its advanced structural and technical solutions. It was put on the UNESCO World Heritage List on

July 2, 2004. We shall halt here for a photo stop for 10 to 15 min and later drop to Regal Cinema, Colaba.
