    Take the subway from the station to the opposite side of the road to enjoy a terrific full view of this Gothic architecture marvel. The splendid structure is beautifully lit at night. A must visit.

    Once called the Victoria Terminus, CST is a brilliant specimen of the Victorian Gothic style of architecture in India. A UNESCO ‘World Heritage Site’, it's the replica of St. Pancras Station, London.

    For lesscrowd get 1st class ticket. The 1st class cabin is NOT labeled in the station but on the train with strips. If a cabin have a lady head that's a lady only cabin.

    Don't ask the cops if you want to take pictures (and you're probably going to want to). They won't notice you otherwise.
