Dhobi Ghaat/ Dhobi Ghat meaning

Dhobi means a Washerman, while ghaat in Hindi means a river bank, or a place at the river bank where one can sit and take a bath or wash clothes.

Thus, dhobi ghaat or dhobi ghat simply means a place where a washerman can wash clothes, and in running usage of the word, it may not even be at a river bank.
