Chatrapathi Shiva Terminus

Much effort has gone into making Mumbai look and feel like London. One of the most stunning example of Victorian Design is Chatrapathi Shivaji Terminus or CST (formerly Victoria Terminus), it's where every person who travel through train to Mumbai City steps out.

Gargoyles are everywhere in CST, serving not only as water spouts but also as sculptures that is scaring off evil spirits. CST's peculiar design is considered to be both gothic and victorian.
