Book Description
A newcomer to Bombay-Mumbai, standing in the Fort area across the road the formidable architectural pile of Victoria Terminus, would wonder what function the building serves. The stained glass windows and gargoyles suggest a cathedral, the huge dome perhaps brings to mind a key educational institution or museum, whereas the massive dimensions of the building, the imposing cast-iron gates and the array of arches, open loggias and carvings are reminiscent of a Maharaja`s grand palace. Few, however, would imagine the structure to be an administrative office and fewer still, a functioning railway terminus, which is precisely what it is.
