Victoria Terminus now known as CST, This is one of the best examples of Victorian- Gothic art and architecture in India. This terminus is the main reason for Mumbai being the gothic city till today. The combination of European architecture with Indian art is the reason this station is very close to palatial designs found at many places in India. The domes, turrets, walls and the floor planning are all grand. The construction of this terminus started in 1878 and went on for around 10 years. The English architects worked hand-in-hand with Indian artisans and craftsmen to create which is till today a prized possession of Mumbai. The design is also somewhere inspired from Italian Medieval structures.
