The Chhatrapati Shivaji (Victoria) Terminus Building, Mumbai

The iconic heritage building housing the Chhatrapati Shivaji Railway Terminus in Mumbai. The building is a world-famous landmark and houses the head offices of the Central Railway (CR) zone of Indian Railways. CST, as it is known, is the terminal point for all of CR’s Central suburban line services and also for many of India’s oldest long distance train services originating from Mumbai. The building originally called Victoria Terminus (VT) was built in 1887 to commemorate Queen Victoria’s Golden Jubilee and to subsequently house the offices of the Great Indian Peninsular Railway (GIPR) company which would after independence become Central Railway. The building is a UNESCO World Heritage site for its unique Victorian-Gothic-Mughal architecture and is a landmark and icon of the city of Mumbai.
