Tour CST’s heritage portals from Dec 28

Heritage enthusiasts will be able to take a close look at the architectural design of Chhatrapati Shivaji Terminus (formerly known as Victoria Terminus) from December 28 when Central Railway (CR) will provide access to the Cshaped main building.

Visitors will also be treated to a collection of rare artifacts and photographs during their trip to the Unesco world heritage site.
CR general manager Subodh Jain told TOI, “Students will be charged Rs 100 and other visitors Rs 200. The access to the heritage building will be allowed between 3pm and 5pm on weekdays.”

Jain further said that the CR plans to appoint guides to explain the finer points of the building’s architecture and the historic significance of the artifacts to the visitors.

Visitors will be allowed to take pictures inside the building for no additional charge.
