Dhobi Ghat - Mumbai's Laundry, Mumbai: 18 reviews and 44 photos


Laundry workers known as dhobiwallahs scrub and wring, pound and thrash the laundry every day all day. This is the kind of scene that you would normally see on river banks. In fact the name Dhobi means laundry and Ghat (or Ghaut) has the local meaning of river bank.

Address: Dhoby Ghat, Dr E Moses Road, Mahalaxmi
