Just ambling along Mumbai’s old corridor can give you a great visual insight into its rich colonial past. In the day time, all those government buildings, bank offices, train stations, hotels and others stand tall in Mumbai’s humid weather. But, if you wish to see the true Mumbai treat, see these buildings in the night when they are beautifully lit up and when the weather is much more pleasant thanks to the gentle sea breeze that blows all around.
I got a good sight of this colonial past when I ambled past these colonial structures in the night time. In this picture is the beautifully lit up Victoria Terminus (now called Chatrapati Shivaji Terminus) that is popularly called as V.T. One of the main train stations of Mumbai, this building with its arches, domes and large clock is an iconic landmark of Mumbai. And it bedazzles everyone every night.
