Chatrapati Shivaji Terminus, earlier known as Victoria Terminus, is one of the busiest railway stations in India. Located in Mumbai (also known as Bombay), a UNESCO world heritage site, is illuminated every year on 26 Jan, on eve of Indian Republic Day.
Built in 1887, this historic monument is known to be designed by Federick William Stevens, to commemorate the golden jubilee of Queen Victoria.
