The Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj Terminus (CSTM) in Mumbai is not unknown to any of us, especially after the famous 26/11 Terrorist attack. The architectural marvel has now been ranked under the top 10 Railway Stations in the world.
It was ranked in the second position right after the New York’s Grand central terminal by the travel website ‘Wonderlist’ as it carried out the ranking based on the ‘architectural triumphs as well as historical relics’.
The Central Railway also took to the Twitter to announce the good news with its followers.
This is not the first time it has made itself in any of the top lists but also holds its place in the UNESCO’s world heritage sites.
CSTM was built in the year 1888 to commemorate Queen Victoria’s crowning. The 131-year-old structure was built by Frederick William Stevens who amalgamated the Mughal and victorian gothic architecture.
The Terminus was earlier named as Victoria Terminus and was later renamed after Maratha King, Chhatrapati Shivaji as ‘Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj Terminus’.
