Gateway of India, Mumbai

4.3
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.

The Monument was built to commemorate the visit of King George V and Queen Mary in the year 1911 to India. 108 years and the monument looks so great looking over the Arabian Sea. amazing picture. the gateway to India. the pictures, lights and crowd is fine. take care of your belongings. This 1920’s structure is right at the end of a point off land. Entrance is free and is easily accessible. Lots of people wanting to take your photo but easily brushed off. Well worth a visit to see the boats as well as the arch. One of the busiest tourist spot. You can spend your day just being here and enjoying the sunshine. You have so many attractive place nearby. In one way its historical place. It's an upscale place. It has witnessed many events. Must visit place you will love it...
