The eternal CST

The Chhatrapati Shivaji Terminus (CST), earlier known as Victoria Terminus (VT) houses the headquarters of Central Railway. It is a world heritage site and one of the busiest railway stations in India. It was designed by Frederick William Stevens in 1887-1888. It bears some resemblance to St. Pancras Station in London.
