The Dhobi Ghat of Mumbai is a rather unlikely tourist attraction. The city has a network of dhobi-wallahs or washermen who collect dirty laundry from private homes and businesses, wash it, press it and return it to its owners. The most famous of Mumbai's dhobi ghats is at Saat Rasta close to Mahalaxmi railway station and is used by 200 washermen and their families. The laundry process starts with immersing the dirty linens in concrete wash pens with flogging stones to loosen the dirt. Vats of boiling starchy water or water with hot caustic soda are used to remove stubborn stains and stiffen the fabric. Ironing is carried out with traditional irons heated with coals. There is no formal way to see the ghats and even when President Clinton made a visit he had to view them from a nearby fly-over.
Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj Vastu Sangrahalaya
Najciekawsze muzeum Bombaju, założone jako Muzuem Księcia Walii na cześć przyszłego króla Edwarda VII na początku XX wieku w związku z jego wizytą w Indiach w Bombaju. Obecnie nazwa zmieniona, jak wszystkie w Bombaju, na bardziej indyjską. Muzeum tchnie aurą dawnych czasów kolonialnych - nic się w nim od tego czasu nie zmieniło. Drogo, wstęp - 200 rupii, jest stanowczo za wysoki.
Mani Bhavan Ganghi Sangrahalaya
Gandhi lived here from 1917 to 1934 and now the small, two storied house in a leafy suburb houses a museum dedicated to his life and work. There is a library of over 50,000 pieces, an auditorium, a tableaux of mini figures in 28 stages detailing his life, a picture gallery, numerous artifacts and possessions of his, the room where he lived, preserved as he left it, the terrace where he slept and finally a sales counter of books, stamps, publications, medallions etc. It is open from 9.30 to 6 every day. The languages available are varied.
