Mumbai has a large open area for laundry known as Mahalaxmi Dhobi Ghat, where you can have the glimpses of washermen washing clothes together.
These washermen spend hours in cleaning the dirty clothes collected from across the city. This Dhobi Ghat is within the vicinity of Mahalaxmi railway station. The Dhobi Ghat is owned by the Mumbai Municipal Council and charges rent from the washermen. In March 2011, it appeared in the Guinness Book of Records for being the largest of its kind with approximately 496 people washing clothes at the same time in the same place.
Visiting the Dhobi Ghat will give you a different feeling of watching laundrymen washing clothes together.
