One look at the centuries-old Chhatrapati Shivaji Terminus and it's easy to see why it occupies UNESCO World Heritage Site classification. The intricacy of the building's exterior ornaments—the central dome, the balanced turrets, and the pointed arches—are all stunning examples of the unique mixture of Victorian Gothic Revival architecture and traditional Indian design motifs that characterize this remarkable edifice. With its lofty stone columns and beautifully ribbed arches, the interior boasts so much of the same striking and distracting appeal that it's easy to forget this elaborate station services more than three million commuters each day.
