It won't be wrong to name or call Victoria Terminus as the lifeblood of the city of Mumbai and I am sure every Mumbaikar will vouch for this. Victoria Terminus is now famed by the name of Chhatrapati Shivaji Terminus. Victoria Terminus , with its blend of Indian and European styles is unlike colonial architecture anywhere else. Nothing can obliterate its secular spirit and its unique mix of east and west. It is one of the major links of the Mumbai suburban railway network.

More on Victoria Terminus
Victoria Terminus Victoria Terminus(VT) was built in the year 1887 by FW Stevens in homage to British Queen Victoria. The building bears a resemblance to St. Pancras Station in London. It took around ten years in the completion of VT. The station is infact a signpost to the rest of India that they have made it to Mumbai. The construction amounted to Rs.16.14 lakhs. VT was renamed as Chhatrapati Shivaji Terminus in 1996. As estimated 2.5 million people use the terminus every day, rushing to catch up with life. Scarcely any of them pay a thought to the station that makes it possible. It is the headquarters of Central Railways and remains one of the busiest stations in India.

VT Architecture
It is an outstanding example of Victorian Gothic Revival architecture in India blended with themes deriving from Indian traditional architecture. The Gothic architecture of the building is softened by the city's lights. Th view is far more beautiful and awe inspiring that anything in the world. The architecture shows motifs of Indian animals and birds; and alongside the carvings of British governors, there are eminent Indians too. In a nutshell it is an impressive monument.

Feather to the Cap
The Victoria Terminus has received many honours. In July 2004, it was nominated and made a World Heritage building by UNESCO. However this was the first functioning administrative building to be selected.

The Chhatrapati Shivaji Terminus is truly Mumbai's nerve centre.
