Mahalaxmi Dhobi Ghat

This astonishing human-powered Laundromat near Mahalaxmi Station is where scores of dhobis (laundrymen) bring dirty clothes from homes and hotels from all over the city each morning to clean them by hand in big open-air troughs. It’s an incredible sight—hundreds of thousands of items of apparel are said to pass through here each day—and what's even more incredible is that each shirt, vest and sock finds its way back to its rightful owner, clean and folded, later that day.
