Victoria Terminus, Mumbai Overview

Opened on the New Year Day in 1882, this Gothic building housing the main railway station of Mumbai was designed by F.W.Stevens and was named after the then Queen Empress on Jubilee day in 1887. It is also declared as an urban heritage site. It was renamed as Chatrapathi Sivaji terminus in 1996 after addition of an underground suburban terminus. Presently, the headquarters of the Central Railway, this magnificent terminus building, commonly known as CST, was completed in 1888 for the Great Indian Peninsular Railway. It is one of the world's grandest railway stations, quite the equal of New York's Grand Central Station or London's St Pancras Station. It looks more like a cathedral than a railway station, an impression strengthened by the tall dome crowned with a statue representing 'Progress'.
