mumbai

The architecture scene in Mumbai is a mixture of florid Gothic Revival styles (derived from those of the United States and Britain in 18th and 19th centuries) and some contemporary (and partly traditional) Indian designs. Many buildings constructed in the Gothic Victorian style during the era of the British rule in India can still be spotted in various areas in the city. One great example of this is the Chhatrapati Shivaji Terminus (formerly Victoria Terminus) – which is the chief train terminal in the city, and also the headquarters of India’s Central Railway company. These older commercial and administrative buildings constructed during (and even before) the British era are merged with contemporary skyscrapers and multi-storeyed concrete-block buildings in the city which gives Mumbai a rich look that includes the best of both worlds.
