View image of Imposing, exuberant and overflowing with people, the Chhatrapati Shivaji Terminus (Victoria Terminus) is Mumbaiâs most extravagant Gothic building, the beating heart of the cityâs railway network and an aphorism for colonial India. It is a meringue of Victorian, Hindu and Islamic styles whipped into an imposing, Daliesque structure of buttresses, domes, turrets, spires and stained-glass windows. It was added to the Unesco World Heritage list in 2004. (Orien Harvey/LPI) (Credit: Orien Harvey/LPI)
The energy, exuberance and diversity of this Indian city is perfectly reflected in its many building styles.
