Chhatrapati Shivaji Terminus
Chhatrapati Shivaji Terminus (CST), a railway station earlier known as Victoria Terminus (VT), is a marvelous piece of Victorian Gothic architecture. The station is positioned on the suburban railway tracks of Mumbai. CST also serves as the headquarters of the Central Railways of India. Built in 1888, this spectacular structure took ten years to complete. Replete with spectacular stained glass windows, stone domes, turrets, pointed arches and an unusual ground plan, the station is unlike any with traditional Indian architecture. It is worth taking a look also for its fine interiors like wood carvings, tiles, ornamental iron, brass railings, etc. This building is a perfect marriage of British architecture with Indian craftsmanship.
In 2004, this majestic building was declared a World Heritage Site by UNESCO.
