The iconic railway station building had its first Heritage Week — a peek into its history and the trappings, fittings and architecture that make it special, and timeless.
Twelve years after the Chhatrapati Shivaji Terminus became the first railway station in India to be acknowledged as a World Heritage Site, the Central Railway marked the occasion with a CST Heritage Week that concluded on Friday. According to the Central Railway, interest in CST doubled during the Heritage Week, and the railway now wants to make it an annual affair.
“There is so much in the archives. There is a plan to promote and generate interest in this building and open it up for researchers and enthusiasts,” says chief spokesperson Narendra Patil.
