The best time to go is early morning when you will not have noisy crowd and rude street vendors pestering you. Gateway of India was designed by Scotland-born architect, George Wittet. Lavishly decorated with Mughal influenced design elements, this imposing basalt arch was completed in 1924, to commemorate England’s King George V and Queen Mary’s 1911 visit to India. Ironically...

This iconic monument may not have met the purpose it was built for but still serves as a marker in to the city of Mumbai flanked by the Taj Hotel right behind it. There is a lovely promenade where one can spend some time and also catch a ferry to the nearby Elephanta caves.

The structure is awesome, the view commanding. The surroundings are very happy and festive all year round. Courting couples, families with kids, senior citizens, or a gang of teenagers- all can have a nice leisure time here. Go for a small launch ride, or just relax on any of the numerous benches. If you're a photography enthusiast, then you won't... More

This is a great place to people watch. However just like everywhere else in Mumbai, there is stacks of people. I wouldn't recommend this place as the main feature of a tour however it is worth seeing for all its craziness.

Visited this on the Sunday and had to queue and go through a security check/ scan first. It is a massive structure and I was told once that it was the first thing visitors saw while docking in Mumbai. There were lots of people in the plaza area and it is very close to the dock to get the tourist... More

It is a historical building, worth to look up once. But it is very crowded place. There some photo takers, who suggest their services - a photo within a minute. But instead of one or two photos they can take several photos and sell them to you. So it's better to negotiate at the beginning on the quantity of photos... More
