    One of India's many wonders
    It was a little hot but definitely worth going.. They have photographers around to click your pictures.. Should get one for your travel board. Do take worli sea link to reach there. The drive is worth it.

    Beauty and grandeur!
    Should be a must visit in your bucket list! An iconic place to visit in Mumbai, it’s grandeur is daunting and a treat to your eyes! We visited during early monsoon and it was just the perfect time to visit I felt, with light showers now and then! You can take a ferry to take a look at the Arabian Sea or even visit the Elephanta caves from here. There are many photographers around who give instant hard copies of your memories and even transfer the digital copy to your phone!

    It is iconic, very busy and chaotic but I was not blown away!
    It is iconic and you must see it but in all honesty, it didn't WOW me. There seems to be permanent renovations going on around the structure which obstructs a lot of it. The area is very busy and crowded so keep bags safe. Walk around it, take it in, take your photographs and then go. When you enter, if you have large bags or a camera, you need to go through security or otherwise you can just go straight in. We went around noon on a Saturday afternoon when it was very busy and hot. The roads around it are chaotic and noisy! What you can see from there, is lovely views of the heritage hotel, the Taj Mahal Palace. This to me, was more stunning and I loved the architecture!

    One of the best monuments of India
    Majority of Mumbai visits are one day visits & exclusively for office work or to catch international flights But whenever we get time, I do not miss Gateway of India. It’s always wonderful to see this monument. Will come again!

    The boad ride experience is too good
    It was a amzing experience. The Gateway is very much a symbol of the past British rule in India and visited daily by thousands of tourists. You are able to take a boat ride out to see the sun set over the Gateway. Iconic but far less interesting than the architectural heritage of the city.

    The Focal Point of Mumbai
    This imposing triumphal arch was built to commemorate the visit of King George V when India was still part of the British Empire. The monument looks like a European style triumphal arch to an Indo-Islamic design, especially the North Indian style of stone lattice windows and Pre-Mughal brackets, fort gates and towers. Also looks amazing like up at night.

    Quick visit to Mumbai
    Stayed in Churchgate area at Sea Green hotel for two nights. Good location for Gateway of India and getting to Elephanta Island. 25 minswalk to the CSMT train station from hotel. There is always a taxi available. Please note the constant noise of car horns beeping. Mumbai is a very noisy city. As a mature female solo traveller I felt safe.

    Good place to visit
    Its a nice place to visit in evening. Light show is running on monument at around 7:30 PM daily. Its quite good and share the history. With lights both Taj hotel and Gateway of India looks great.

    Worth the effort
    One of the places we wanted to see on our recent trip, well worth the effort. Although my wife became one of the attractions as people wanted to take a picture with her ( this does happen a lot in some parts of India!!) 😊 it was quite busy with the ubiquitous soundtrack of vehicle horns blaring incessantly.

Located on the waterfront of Mumbai. A large open area, the doesn't get very crowded. On a hot sunny day take an umbrella as there is no shade, Worth a look at up close.

Very crowded and had lots of photographers. The price for pics is very affordable. So, do recommend taking some pics for souvenirs.

We visited on a tour and had 30 minutes here which is probably enough unless you wish to take a boat tour also. It is a must see when visiting Mumbai with it's history.
