Here is  something I didn't know about ...so much for my  GK on My own mother land !!!! ..

From Wiki :

A place in India, where local washer men wash clothes [open air laundromat] is called Dhobi Ghat.Dhobi Ghat is a well known place in Mumbai. The washers locally known as Dhobis work in open to wash the clothes from Mumbai's hotels and hospitals. There are row upon row of open-air concrete wash pens, each fitted with its own flogging stone. Termed as the world's largest outdoor laundry Dhobi Ghat is a very popular attraction among foreign tourists.

The word Dhobi Ghat is used all over India to refer to any place where many washers are present.

It is located next to Mahalaxmi Station on Western Railway on Saat Rasta roundabout. It can be easily seen from flyover bridge of Mahalaxmi station. 

A bollywood movie of the same name, Dhobi Ghat (film), was released on 21 January, 2011 in India. ( NOW THAT I KNOW !!!)
