Dhobi Ghat Tours

Dhobi Ghat
At the world’s largest outdoor laundry, every day for over 120 years the dirt has been washed from thousands of kilos of clothes by the dhobis (washermen and women) of Mumbai’s Mahalaxmi Dhobi Ghat. 

Formed back in 1890, the famous laundromat is much loved by photographers who come to take colorful images of row upon row of washing troughs where hundreds of families clean piles of laundry that come from all over the city. Strings of brightly-colored clothes drying under the Mumbai sun also make for a popular picture. More than just a laundry, Dhobi Ghat is also a great place to see old saris being brought back to life under expert hands. 

Mahalaxmi Dhobi Ghat is owned by the city council, who charges rent and maintenance costs to the dhobis. If you love the smell of clean laundry and want to get right into the thick of things at Dhobi Ghat, an escort can show you around and introduce you to the workers for around 200 rupees per person. 

Practical Info

For the best photos of the iconic Dhobi Ghat, just head to bridge across the railway tracks from Mahalaxmi train station.

In my opinion, tourists need a guide to explore the hidden places of a city and not the typical touristy spots. My tour is completely based on showing the non-touristy and off beat places in Mumbai. I start the tour with exploring the biggest flower market of Mumbai, and further we head to a 800 years old fishermen (original inhabitants of Mumbai) village in the middle of the city by commuting in a city bus to experience the bus ride which is used by 3 million commuters EVERYDAY! After that we go to a fortress (Built in 1675) at the end of the village. Post that we head out to explore the biggest open air laundromat (Dhobi Ghat) where around 100,000 pieces of clothes are hand-washed on daily basis.
