About Gateway of India

This Mumbai landmark was built to commemorate the visit of King George V and Queen Mary to Bombay in the year 1911. Ironically, the construction of the structure only completed in 1924 and it has, ever since, been one of the most visited tourist attractions in Mumbai. The greatness of the work of acclaimed architect, George Wittet is evident when you look at this Indo-Saracenic structure built in yellow basalt stone, with influences of Islamic style architecture, prevalent in Gujarat at the time. Not only will a visitor get some terrific photography shots at this place, but you will also find local vendors selling lip-smacking street foods like bhelpuri, Sev puri, etc. With the walled boundary of the structure brushing with the Arabian Sea, you'll find a number of tourists savoring the view of the place have to offer. P.S- The boat for Elephanta Islands is also available from here.
