Gateway of India, Mumbai (Bombay)
(4.1/5 based on 6,000+ reviews on the web)
Watching over the Arabian Sea, Gateway of India stands as perhaps the city's most recognizable symbol. The imposing gate, which reaches a height of 26 m (85 ft), reminds visitors of the grand architectural legacy the British colonial empire left behind. Note that the basalt gate fuses several different architectural styles, including Roman triumphal features and local Hindu and Muslim aspects. You can wander through the gate to view the domed ceiling and see the inscription above the arch, dedicated to the visit of King George V and Queen Mary in 1911.

  • If in Mumbai, better check this off your list. We first visited this as part of Mumbai Darshan bus tour, have been there several times since then. You can also take Ferry Boat ride to Elephanta Island...  more »

  • This is the gateway through which King George and his queen first stepped into their kingdom of India. It's one of Mumbai's best-known tourist spots. From here you can visit the Elephanta islands.

  • the 20th century monument looks astonishing. street food is good. costly but good. the sea and waves are just making the place lit all day. you can go boat ride if you have enough money to spend. lovely place.
  • One of the great historic place in Mumbai. Every one who come to mumbai surely wish to visit this place. The Arch is replica of Foreign invaders visit to India. The architecture design for this monument includes Gujarati and Scottish styles,which amused me. The place is so pleasant to stay there for visitors.There are facilities like boating, photography etc.. Must visit place to get splendid experience in India Darshan..
  • One of the places Mumbai known for, a nice tourist spot. The Gateway looks elegant with beautiful miniature carvings. There are lots of tourists visiting here everyday. Place didn't used to be clean, but its improving day by day, the place is clean now, there's a lot of policemen for security. From here along with enjoying the Gateway view, you can also take a look at the sea, the elegant Taj, and also can hire a Ferry to Elephanta Caves
  • Brownish, dirty waters, Irritating photographers, bird poops are the first sights here which probably overshadow the historic Gateway of India monument itself and overall makes this place an average visit. May be people coming from northern parts of India may feel excited at this because of no coastal places there. But if you are coming from southern coastal cities like Vizag, Chennai etc., there is nothing here that can make you feel wow! The place is a not a natural scenic beauty as such, which is normally expected from a beach and with hundreds of small tourist boats, its looks more like a large stagnant dull lake rather than a majestic sea. One time visit if you are staying in Mumbai and if you are a visitor you need not regret if you are not visiting this place!!!
  • A place you surely won't like to miss if you are in Mumbai. It is a really nice place. Best time to visit this place is at late night, where you can find a pleasant cool breeze sitting at the sea shore. When the lights fall on the water tides, they look so replenishing. It's an amazing view to capture.
