Watson’s Hotel (actually Watson’s Esplanade Hotel), now known as the Esplanade Mansion, is India’s oldest surviving cast iron building. Located in the Kala Ghoda area of Bombay, it was named after its original owner, John Watson.

The building was fabricated in England and constructed on site between 1860 and 1863. It was designed by civil engineer Rowland Mason Ordish, who was also associated with the St Pancras Station in London. The external cast-iron frame closely resembles other high-profile 19th century buildings such as London’s Crystal Palace. The main façade of the hotel is distinguished by wide open balconies on each floor that connected the guest rooms, which were built around the atrium in a courtyard arrangement. At its peak, Watson’s hotel employed English waitresses in its restaurant and ballroom. This was also the first place in India to screen the Lumière Brothers’ Cinematograph invention in 1896. After Watson’s death, the hotel lost its popularity and was closed in the 1960s.
