“What a building!!”
Reviewed January 2, 2014

Any trip to Mumbai must, I think, include a visit to the terminus. You have to go inside the building, to appreciate the number of people who use the trains, but it's the architecture that is really amazing.

From across the main roads that are around the terminus, you get a better view. I usually start from the McDonald's opposite, before getting a closer look outside and wandering around inside. In most books, the description is about the 'neo-Gothic style', which I think of as much like a cathedral. The rose window and the peacock carving are exceptional. Inside, have a look in the booking hall.

“Grand Central”
Reviewed December 26, 2013

Rivals the Grand Central station of NY. The history of Victoria Terminus and the spectacular building is worth a look. Every day so many dreamers arrive in Mumbai to change their fortunes!
