Chhatrapati Shivaji Terminus
 

Chhatrapati Shivaji TerminusThe Chhatrapati Shivaji Terminus, formerly known as Victoria Terminus is at Dr. D.Naoroji Road, Nagar Chowk. Declared as a World Heritage Site by UNESCO, it  is the city's most beautiful Indo-Gothic architectural splendour. This station was designed by Frederick Stevens as the headquarters of the Great Indian Peninsular Railway Company and was completed in 1887. A life-size statue of Queen Victoria is placed in front of the central facade. Carvings of peacocks, gargoyles, monkeys, elephants and British lions are mixed up among the buttresses, domes, turrets, spires and stained glass windows. Topping it all is a 4m-high torch bearing figure of Progress.
