With its turrets, domes, gargoyles, spires, lion-topped gateways, stained-glass windows, glazed tiles, carved arches and decorative brickwork, the station is reminiscent of London’s St Pancras and Charing Cross stations, and looks similarly over-the-top in its workaday role as a train terminus.
There’s a jungle theme to the facade, with its monkeys and peacocks, plus more serious-looking statues to the Arts and Sciences. The statue of Queen Victoria that once graced the central dome has been removed.
Asia’s busiest railway station, and hub for Mumbai’s radiating network of suburban rail lines and long-distance connections, the terminus had a starring role in the hit movie 'Slumdog Millionaire'.
Urban Adventures was not aware that we had booked a whole day tour. They had to adjust the programme. Guide was good. We had to take an expensive taxi to return to the city center.
A thorough and enjoyable walking tour around the main sights of Colaba and Fort. My guide was friendly and willing to modify the tour for my interests as I was lucky to be the only person on the tour. Breakfast was also delicious.
It was ok to get an short Idea of Mumbai.
Lots of walking on this Tour. Guide was very friendly and helpful.
Very negativ on this Tour are the starting Point which was very, very hard to find. No signs! Also end of the Tour in Bandra a very negativ point. Bandra is far outside of Mumbai City.
