Must see when in Mumbai, to experience the colonial feeling and look at the Taj hotel across. The evening lighting is poor no where near professional. How much more can be done to showcase our heritage better. Even rains are fun.

A good place to visit and reminisce about the bygone era! Take in the grandiose of the Taj after taking in the sights of the Gateway. An architectural marvel and hope the visitors keep the area clean and not destroy the sanctity of this landmark heritage sight.

Gateway of India is a Historic and an Archaeological Monument. However recent security threats and the limitations imposed does not allow one to enjoy and view the monument properly. Lack of proper trained and certified guides does not allow one to have the actual knowledge. Except for the Information written on the Plaque and Boards, But how many of our... More

The Gateway to India is worth a quick look but it'll only take a minute to see all there is there. There are crowds of people, mostly visiting the site and lots selling random 'rubbish'. Worth a walk to it if you are in the Colaba area but nothing mind blowing here.

This is the point from where the last British troops left India post independence. There are several photographers available to take your pictures and photoshop it against the backdrop of the Gateway of India. Tonga rides are also available for kids. The Taj hotel is nearby. There is also a horse-riding statue of Chhatrapathi Shivaji Maharaj. The cleanliness can definitely... More

This is a 'must-visit' location when you visit Mumbai. Besides its historic importance, the place has a sea-side promenade to walk and get a good glimpse of Mumbai harbour. Good place to click your pictures with the Gateway monument and the harbour in the background. You can ride one of the ferries that take you around the sea and give... More

Here is nearly the center so we can walk around to visit other places and take pictures with very traditional architecture, garden. But be careful with your own safety, walk in group and return home before 9pm. this is what I heard from the... More

A must visit, when you are in Mumbai. Very Near to Mumbai CST. Best time to visit is in the evening when it marvelously decorated with colour lights. When we visited this place, it was drizzling, but still, we enjoyed.
