  • Incredible post-independence India! Where railways stations can look like cathedrals! The weight of history is such that a highly decorated and original style building can be used as a station.  more »

  • Busiest railway station in India. Need more services and better public announcement systems. Platforms need regular housekeeping and tracks are full of garbage.
  • Very beautifully made airport of international standards. Needs many more immigration counters and security check counters. Takes a lot of time to get through the same.
  • Most beautiful building and station of mumbai and also certified as UNESCO'S world heritage site and India's first train station and first train run from this station to thane which is sub urban of Mumbai
  • Feels too good to see cstm again after so long time
  • Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj Terminus is The Lifeline of Mumbai, Maharashtra, India. One can get trains to every single destination from here. There are more than 16 platforms. Kokan railway, central railway, harbour line railway are operated from this place. Just love being there. 1 more thing, there is a reservation center and if one has to buy tickets there are long queues. Police security is also available.
