The Arabian Sea and The Gate way just caught my attention

You can walk around the coast and see thousands of pigeons fly. The weather is mostly moderate. Must visit when in Bangalore.

Look at this iconic monument from Taj or vice-versa , it has been engraved with the names of Martyrs , take a photo worth 30 Rs. In front of this beauty. Also go to Elephanta caves for 500 Rupees !

Representing a link to its colonial past, this is a must-see destination in Mumbai but is otherwise rather uninteresting unless you also take the opportunity to people watch or catch a ferry to Elephanta island, which I strongly recommend.

It is very busy by this area with many visitors. You can walk round the gateway but unfortunately not through it. You get sea views from it and a landward view of the Taj Palace hotel.

Very crowded on weekends, have a good photo shoot with the back drop of sea, ships, Gateway of India, taj hotel or Shivaji statue. The food on the street is not hygienic.

This is a must stop when you visit mumbai. Glimpse of taj hotel from gateway is scenic. You can take a boat ride if you go there before sunset. Sad to say but gateway of india now freshens the memory of 26/11 attacks. But solid it stands, solid we stand

Its a must see, I know. But the stacked rock has nothing on the mass of humanity that surrounds it. You will see it all - be sure to look places besides the arch.

I visited at sunrise which was lovely - much cooler and less busy, lovely atmosphere and beautiful views across the sea and all of the little boats.
