“a 'must see' in Mumbai”
Reviewed January 26, 2013

A beautiful building from the outside. Vast and could be glorious if decorated inside but I don't suppose it would stay that way for long as 3m people pass through each day.
Also went through subway under the road, which is at the entrance, this is filled with shops.

“Excellent piece of Architecture.”
Reviewed January 25, 2013

You never realize that this building could be a Railway Station till you see it carefully. The sculpture on the top, the tower and the central hall are very good. All water spouts have animals carved on them. Just walk around it to actually see it.
