Like it or not, the people of Mumbai/Bombay have no escape from this huge reminder of history which looms over the surrounding area.

As a very significant emblem of the city, this is a "must see". To be honest, there is little to distinguish it from similar big archways in other countries (the Arc we Triomphe in Paris; London's Admiralty Arch) although it does seem impressively bigger - perhaps due to its isolation from other buildings.

Those catching a boat from the Gateway to other destinations such as Elephanta Island should be careful about which "gate" they take, as this can be very confusing.

Travellers should be prepared for a certain number of hawkers and beggars.

The Gateway to India is an absolute must see in Mumbai ... or even India! It gets very busy at weekends and in the evenings and when the boats are running to Elephanta Island (where there are temples carved out of caves) and is beautifully lit at night too.

It’s always good to know more about history and Gateway of India is the right place to visit however you can not enter, just see from outside and extremely crowded, be prepared for it.

It is situated just in front of The Taj Hotel and by it's side there's a grand sea ! It is an arch monument & was erected to commemorate the landing of King George V and Queen Mary at Apollo Bunder on their visit to India in 1911. A good spot with good view all around , gets crowdy during evenings & 1 Shld give a try to street food .

This place never let's me down, whether it be the rich history or the amount if people from different backgrounds. Certainly a must if visiting Mumbai. People are there to take photos for you for a small cost.
