See hundreds of people hard at work at Dhobi Ghat, a traditional open-air launderette. Take a tour of the large site to see the dhobis washing and drying clothes and materials in separate baths and colorful drying areas. Each individual wash pen features a flogging stone on which the dhobis beat the clothes to dry them, with water flying through the air in an entertaining scene. A guided tour introduces you to the history of the site, and the lives of the workers and their families.

  • The place is good for a one time visit... Photographers can stimulate their photography skills and find interesting shots here.. The reason for three stars is, the place is not every clean and tidy.. People here amiable and co-operative.

I recommend the tour because you learn how the whole system works and get to see how the work is done. And where the people live - just steps away from where they work each day.
