Dhobi Ghat

This arrangement seems unique. I've never seen a similar one anywhere else so far.
Built by the British, it should be 100 years old at least say the dhobis who still use it. They remember their grandfathers using the dhobi ghat. Its maintained by the Municipality - hence the pristine condition.They pay a tax to use it and it remains exclusive to the old families.
Maybe the place where our clothes get 'dry-cleaned' :-)

The design of the Dhobi Ghat is quite interesting! Where exactly in Ooty is it?
