Bori Bunder literally means a place where sacks are stored. This was one of the areas along the Eastern shore line of Mumbai, India which was used as a storehouse for goods imported and exported from Mumbai. In the 1850s, the Great Indian Peninsular Railway built its railway terminus in this area and the station took its name as Bori Bunder. It was eventually named Victoria Terminus, after the then reigning Queen and has been subsequently renamed Chhatrapati Shivaji Terminus after Maharashtra's and India's famed 17th century king. Thought the shortened name is now CST, it still continues to be referred to as VT by the masses, not out of any sense of nostalgia but just out of practice.
