What an amazing place to visit, chances are that if you sent your laundry to be washed while staying in Mumbai it would have been washed, scrubbed, beaten, brushed and dried here. The place is a must see and I will never complain again about having to do my washing.

Have never understood what there is to see. I guess not much in Mumbai so all tourists are taken here- crowded viewing, no parking and a large open air laundry!

Not sure how they keep everything so organised, 6-Sigma should do a study to see if the come close to the tiffin-wallahs in accuracy! Eye-opening to see how labor intensive it is to actually wash clothes by hand.

Are you looking for a place where to give to your camera a chance? Well, the famous main Dhobi Ghat of Mumbai is the right place. Water splashes, sweat, unique colors. Astonishing for a passionate photographer...

When I travel I always try to go to places where I can meet 'real' people, I mean, the person on the streets, the real country, not just monuments, museums, churches and the lot! Dhobi Ghat in Mumbai is one of those places where you can see the hard life of people who wash tons of clothes, the interesting techniques used.
