Each individual wash pen features a flogging stone on which the dhobis beat the clothes to dry them, with water flying through the air in an entertaining scene. A guided tour introduces you to the history of the site, and the lives of the workers and their families.

  • Çamaşırcıların come into the area we looked at bird's eye view from the top, we saw the hanging laundry! It's an interesting landscape. Our guide once upon a time there were several here, even the laundry of the hotels, he said. To me, a lot of small business sounds like the laundry in the wash still here wandering around an interesting landscape, better to come by and look, good photo.

Where to stay in Mumbai (Bombay)

In a cramped city like Mumbai, finding a budget hotel can present a serious challenge. Many business travelers and tourists choose to stay in South Mumbai, the oldest and richest neighborhood in the city. Accommodations here put you close to most top museums, restaurants, bars, art galleries, and shops. Proximity to major attractions comes at a premium price, though--not surprising for one of the most expensive cities in Asia. If you plan to visit on a tight budget, look for options near railway stations, but prepare for low-grade rooms and few or no amenities.
