Excellent

This historical building of CST is definitely an eye candy for history and architecture lovers. This terminal is an integral part of the Mumbai city. The government has opened a railway museum inside this building which very informative.

Heart of the railway network

Mumbai is full of colonial buildings, the most representative being the grand central station, Chhatrapati Shivaji Terminus (formerly Victoria station). It is the heart of the railway network and a symbol of the colonial era with turrets, steeples and stained glass domes. It was officially completed in 1887 even though the first train from India left from there 34 years before that. In 2004 it was declared a UNESCO world heritage site. It´s the busiest station in Asia

Victoria Terminal

Mumbai is a very modern city that's full of buildings that harken back to the British presence. Perhaps one of his finest exponents is Chhatrapati Shivaji Station or as it was known earlier, Victoria Station, in honor of Queen Victoria. In 2004, UNESCO declared it a World Heritage Site. It's Gothic style and is crowned by several gargoyles, today it's one of the busiest train stations in India.
