CST – Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj Terminus or previously known as VT – Victoria Terminus – a historic railway station and a UNESCO World Heritage Site in Mumbai, Maharashtra, India which serves as the headquarters of the Central Railways. The station was designed by Frederick William Stevens according to the concept of Victorian Italianate Gothic Revival architecture and meant to be a similar revival of Indian Goth (classical era) architecture.

The Land of Double Decker bus’ and Kaali Peeli’s

The doubledecker, once the pride of the Mumbai city, was first launched in 1937 with 210 buses in its fleet. According to a BEST official, the single-decker bus has 52 sitting capacity and 13 standing, while the doubledecker has 78 sitting and 19 standing capacity.

Marine Lines, Mumbai

Marine Lines is a locality in South Mumbai. The name Marine Lines is derived from the Marine Battalion Lines, a military establishment built by the British in the 19th century. The battalion was later converted to an air force residential quarters, and now lies just south of Metro Adlabs. It is also the name of a railway station on the Mumbai suburban railway on the Western Railway railway line. Marine Drive is a 3.6-kilometre-long Boulevard in South Mumbai in the city of Mumbai, India. The road was constructed by late philanthropist Bhagojisheth Keer & Pallonji Mistry. It is a ‘C’-shaped six-lane concrete road along the coast, which is a natural bay. The road links Nariman Point to Babulnath and Malabar Hill. Marine Drive is situated on reclaimed land facing west-south-west. A promenade lies parallel to this road. Marine Drive is also known as the Queen’s Necklace because, if viewed at night from an elevated point anywhere along the drive, the street lights resemble a string of pearls in a necklace.

Mumbai as a city has enthralled me with it’s lively vibe, when you see it’s two in the night and people are flocking out of their houses you know you’re in Mumbai, the city that never sleeps.

  1. so good to see such nice pictures of Mumbai, South Mumbai or town is really where one gets the true-Bombay feel. while i stayed in Mumbai, I made it a point to go to South Mubai as often as possible to walk through the old world structures and enjoy the Parsi food.

  2. Last time I was in Mumbai, I actually walked through all of these spots and I believe that it is so important to experience a city by walking. The things that you see are so different. I wish I had tried the double decker which I couldnt as I did not take public transport. I will surely try that out when I am in Mumbai the next time.

  3. I love the vibe of Mumbai. To be honest I had never appreciated the architecture of Mumbai until the last time I visited there. I can remember myself standing in front of CST and admiring the building. The art deco of Mumbai is also one of my favourites. It is good to see Mumbai through pictures!


  4. Ah, Mumbai meri jaan! This was an absolute treat to the eyes. Mumbai – especially in monsoons is incredible! Thanks for sharing this journey virtually with the rest of us 🙂
