King's Circle is a railway station
on Mumbai's Harbour Line. It is also the name of a circular park
in Matunga, Mumbai, which has since been renamed Maheshwari Udyan.
Like most other renamed places, locals still prefer calling it by its old name. Actually King's Circle and Matunga stations are next to each other albeit the former on the Harbour and the latter on the Central line. Thus these two places are one and the same.
The trains passing through King's Circle station are only the ones going to Bandra and Andheri from CST and vice versa.
Located very close to King's Circle station is South Indian Education Society High School which is one of Mumbai's oldest and premier schools.
King's Circle is also central to various other places like Koliwada, Wadala or Vadala, Sion, Dadar and C.G.S. Colony (Antop Hill); and is a prime location for real estate and business due to which real estate costs are rather high.
Most newcomers find it difficult to afford owning a house in King's Circle and those that are already owned belong to people living here since at least a couple of generations.
Traffic congestion and water logging during monsoon are major problems facing the circle. The circle used to be a tram terminus, until trams were decommissioned.
