This remarkable open air laundry captures all the colour and work ethic of India. With an aerial view from the railway bridge, it is a fascinating place to just stand and watch life happening.

Many foreigners may find this place attractive to know the different professions that exhibits the skyline of Mumbai. The place is now being razed and undergoing rehabilitation. Also, many bollywood movies have been shot here...lol

The people in this slum area go about their business of washing huge piles of cloths, sheets and other garments in vast vats, basins and pools - they all work so hard physically - to see them at their work is truly amazing and humbling.A unique place

A heritage site in Mumbai. Interesting to see the work of the dhobis, the washermen. Definitely worth having a look.

It only takes a little time to get an overview of Dhobi Ghat. When you think that the men that do the washing pay about 300 Rupees per month for their space it is quite increadible. It is fascinating to see the amount of washing that is coming from hotels etc. also it is obvious that some clothing manufacturers are... More

I only rated this average because I did not travel into the Dhobi Ghat or go any closer than photograph it from a bridge. That said it should be a must see on every traveler's list. This area is apparently owned by one company and they do massive amounts of laundry here each day.

This is an amazing site, but be prepared to be shocked by the slum area that surrounds it. You can have a guided tour for 500 rupees, but negotiate a better price.
