The Chhatrapati Shivaji Terminus, formerly known as Victoria Terminus (or VT), is an outstanding example of Victorian Gothic Revival architecture, blended with themes deriving from the Indian tradition. Today it bustles with over 2.5 million people passing through every day.
The building, designed by the British architect F W Stevens, became the symbol of Bombay as the "Gothic City". It was built over ten years starting in 1878, according to a High Victorian Gothic design based on late-medieval Italian models. Its stone dome, turrets, pointed arches, and eccentric ground plan are close to traditional Indian palace architecture.
