Owner description: India's most beautiful railway station is a masterpiece of Gothic architecture with stained-glass windows, towering spires, domed arches and buttresses and pillars with animal images carved into them.

It's like a London terminus but somehow seems bigger - perhaps because it is. The stonework is certainly even more elaborate - truly a thing of beauty.

Go towards sunset to get the best light, and do step inside, if the timings work, to experience the frenetic activity of rush hour.

Do not miss the terminal, beautiful architecture and long history. Not easy to park front of it but there is a view point

This was the only time in Mumbai we were confronted with beggars who persistently knocked on the windows of our car - Victoriana without the Queen.

What a beautiful building this is and so busy, so many commuters.
The gothic facade is absolutely fabulous you just think the wealth that must have been around at the time of the British period when this building was designed and built must have been amazing.
A must see for this remarkable city.
