During rains you will find a lot of corn cob sellers and tea/coffee vendors. Horse drawn victoria's are another tourist attraction. If one likes to splurge then the heritageTaj hotel there for you to splurge and pamper yourself.

The Gateway calls for an evening walk and this is also the place from where you could take a ferry to Elephanta Caves. It is next to the Taj hotel, and one can always cherish the beauty by its side.

High historical value but extremely unkept. Hawkers n riff raff crowd makes it v unpleasant. Beware of the steps that lead to the jetty. Its a disaster waiting to happen

Looking majesticly to the Arabian sea for more than 100 years.Mumbai was built around this gate.People from all over the globe come to see this ancient wonder also the sea cluttered with thousands of colourful boats which take you to the Elephants island.Also behind the gateway is the famous Taj hotel.You can have your picture taken at a nominal cost...

Mumbai trip is incomplete without visiting Gateway of India, this coupled with the royal façade of the Taj hotel make a fascinating combination
