“CST Heritage Building”
Reviewed 19 December 2011

Chhatrapati Shivaji Terminus is a UNESCO world heritage building and the Head office of the Central Railway. The place is itself very busy so the cleaniless is on the lower side. But from the other side of the road the building looks asthetic.

“The one thing to see in Bombay”
Reviewed 15 December 2011

Even if it sounds strange, it seems that the former Victoria station is one of the climaxes of bombay's sights... Unlike many ohter Indian cities, most of the sights in Bombay date back to the Victorian era. And this one is an impressive piece of architecture I must say.

“Beautiful architecture plus the pulse of Mumbai”
Reviewed 10 December 2011

Great place to see the magnificent Victorian architecture. Be there during peak hours to see the amazing throng of people moving in or out of the station. More amazing than the building. Also don't miss the BMC building right opposite the station.

“Beautiful area, surrounded by old Portuguese structures”
Reviewed 6 December 2011

this place is known as Mumbai CST. Earlier name was VT - Victoria terminus. I visited the place couple of times, to catch trains from this place. Every time, I wondered to the magnificent buildings I saw there. This place has been designated as "world heritage site" by UNESCO.
This place has some nice shops too ... good bakeries with fresh breads and biscuits. I also found original Nikon battery from a Nikon shop here. There are few curio shops selling nice antique pieces too.

“total chaos .”
Reviewed 1 December 2011

As one Mumbaikar said transport is likened to chaos , but organized chaos.This place sums it .Best time is see it in the morning when people come into the city and in the evening when they go home.Watch the sidewalk for shoe repairs,men getting shaves on the foothpath.etc.
