Laundry man in local language is called Dhobi. This area near Mahalakshmi suburban train station is open air laundry area where large scale washing of clothes done. The colourful clothes hanged for drying is a scene interesting to watch. Many Hindi movies are shot here. One Hindi movie with same title was released few years back.

This place is very unusual and worth seeing as it is pretty interesting, but it does take a while to get out to. There really isn't any need to go down into the actual area, the best view is from the bridge above, and I have heard of people feeling in danger when going down into the dhobi ghat, although...

Not really a site worthy of seeing. Just looks like a slum where clothing is washed. You won't miss much by not visiting this place!

You can see this from the Mahalashmi station bridge. There is nothing great about the place but is good enough to be see once to understand the way these local laundry guys operate. They have a very efficient system at work. We Indian do not appreciate this much but people from developed countries are amazed to see this place.

Dhobi Ghat is a well-known open air laundry in Mumbai. It is located next to Mahalaxmi railway station on the Western Railway's Saat Rasta roundabout. It can be easily seen from flyover bridge of Mahalaxmi station. The washers, locally known as Dhobis, work in the open to wash the clothes from Mumbai's hotels and hospitals.

A place to see early hours of the day when all the action starts at Dhobi Ghat (hand laundry). A must see place which reminds of Bombay in midsts of Mumbai skyline and flashy lifestyle..
