Dhobi Ghat

At the world’s largest outdoor laundry, every day for over 120 years the dirt has been washed from thousands of kilos of clothes by the dhobis (washermen and women) of Mumbai’s Mahalaxmi Dhobi Ghat. 

Formed back in 1890, the famous laundromat is much loved by photographers who come to take colorful images of row upon row of washing troughs where hundreds of families clean piles of laundry that come from all over the city. Strings of brightly-colored clothes drying under the Mumbai sun also make for a popular picture. More than just a laundry, Dhobi Ghat is also a great place to see old saris being brought back to life under expert hands. 

Mahalaxmi Dhobi Ghat is owned by the city council, who charges rent and maintenance costs to the dhobis. If you love the smell of clean laundry and want to get right into the thick of things at Dhobi Ghat, an escort can show you around and introduce you to the workers for around 200 rupees per person.
