Mahalaxmi Dhobi Ghat information
If you’ve had washing done in Mumbai, chances are your clothes have already visited this 140-year-old dhobi ghat (place where clothes are washed). The whole hamlet is Mumbai’s oldest and biggest human- powered washing machine: every day hundreds of people beat the dirt out of thousands of kilograms of soiled Mumbai clothes and linen in 1026 open-air troughs. The best view, and photo opportunity, is from the bridge across the railway tracks near Mahalaxmi train station.
