my personal experience in CST station.
Aug. 2021
CST station is one of the oldest railway platform in India established in British rule. During the early period it was name as Victoria station later it was changed. I have a good experience in this platform because I have to travel daily . most important thing here is food I would recommend all of you that avoid buying foods or snacks from railway services except water which you can buy.

Stunning Example of Both Architecture and Life
Jan. 2020 • Couples
This is the city's most celebrated Gothic structure. Lavishly decorated with sculptures, it was designed by William Stevens and was opened in 1887 to coincide with the Queen Victoria's Golden Jubilee celebrations. Makes a striking sight with its cathedral like spires, turrets, arches, Corinthian columns & stained glass windows.

As the most important transport hub in the world's busiest commuter rail network, every day over 1,250 local and long-distance trains pull in and out of its 18 platforms. Together, they carry around three million passengers – that’s more people than travel on the entire British railway network per day. Up to 5000 passengers cram themselves into - or sometimes even on top of - trains built to hold only 1200.

A world heritage monument
Dec. 2019
Incredibly this place has been classed as a world heritage monument. It is Victorian building of massive proportion facing the very busy road. And the station that lies behind it has to be seen to be believed. It is not only big by any standards but it is the chaos and the number of people that blows your mind. Definitely worth wandering inside the station to see this. The front façade is lit up at night and makes for a nice phot shop. But mind the trafiic.
