Apparently primarily laundry service for commercial customers. We stood at the bridge and watched for about 7-8 minutes on a Sunday morning at about 10 am. Our driver waited right there. Was not that crowded on the bridge or down in the ghat, By the way, I didn't see any hand-washing. Seems the workers have washing machines now.

We just found this place fascinating... Our guide took us in, just couldn't believe the scale of this laundry, such a tough place to work, never seen anything like this! Will never moan about doing laundry at home again! Recommend this be included on any Mumbai tour.

I was traveling with a friend, who had never been to Mumbai before and thought he should see it. It has changed since the... More

It has to be seen and one can do so from the road above. 250,0000 items per day are washed by hand but size of the task and the need for speed means that electri driers are now to be seen. A great Mumbai sight.

This is a hand-wash laundry on an industrial scale! Laundry is collected from local houses and homes and washed in the open-air by a group of male dhobi-wallahs. The cleanliness of the clothes is achieved by the washing solution used and the beating of the clothes to get them clean (rather than frequent changes of water). When washed and dried... More

This complex, yet very simple business model provides a unique laundry service to the massive city of Mumbai. An absolute must see!
