A really amazing place - just so hard to think how much washing is done here and so amazingly clean. How do they do it?

Great place to take colourful photos of people. If you get a chance, get a local guide who can take you inside.

The Dhobi Ghat is right next to the Mahalaxmi station on the Western Railway line and one can get a good bird's eye view from the railway bridge. This place is especially popular among foreign tourists, giving them a good understanding of the amazing ecosystem that thrives in this city. For a Indian, the place is nothing too special, but...

Go early in the morning to catch the full action (and the best light) at this incredible spot. It's a bit of a trek through the Mumbai traffic but an prompt start will help probably help in that respect as well.

Many foreigners may find this place attractive to know the different professions that exhibits the skyline of Mumbai. The place is now being razed and undergoing rehabilitation. Also, many bollywood movies have been shot here...lol

The people in this slum area go about their business of washing huge piles of cloths, sheets and other garments in vast vats, basins and pools - they all work so hard physically - to see them at their work is truly amazing and humbling.A unique place

A heritage site in Mumbai. Interesting to see the work of the dhobis, the washermen. Definitely worth having a look.
