Dhobi Ghat (Mahalaxmi Dhobi Ghat) is a well known open air laundromat in Mumbai, India. The washers, locally known as Dhobis, work in the open to wash the clothes from Mumbai's hotels and hospitals.
There are rows of open-air concrete wash pens, each fitted with its own flogging stone.
Called the world's largest outdoor laundry, Dhobi Ghat is a very popular attraction among foreign tourists, but no one is brave enough to go downstairs to forbidden part of Mumbai. It was my second attempt to create reportage from this so exiting place in a world where only long lens can hardly catch what happening inside.This time more experienced and more encouraged we managed to do it. This is what I saw and photographed. This is my story of Dhobi Ghat.
A Bollywood movie of the same name, Dhobi Ghat, was released on 21 January, 2011 in India.
In this reportage also I used some pictures from Juhu Beach - one of the most famous beaches in Mumbai and
The Haji Ali Dargah - a mosque and dargah located on an islet off the coast of Worli in the Southern part of Mumbai.
