See hundreds of people hard at work at Dhobi Ghat, a traditional open-air launderette. Take a tour of the large site to see the dhobis washing and drying clothes and materials in separate baths and colorful drying areas. 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.
