This Gateway stands solid at Mumbai's edge, its splended looks cant be ignored when you are on land or at Sea. It looks beautiful from the jetty, with the Taj Hotel at the background. Truly a splended British architectured monument. It reminds of the classy monuments that the Imperial rulers gave India.

Mumbai city, though financial capital of India in the Modern times, is not blessed with Mughal Mahals / Forts or British Palaces. Still Gateway of India is the Historic face of Mumbai. Gateway of India has the famous Taj Hotel, National Museum and Art Galleries in its vicinity. Generally, this area is overcrowded due to visitors across Globe and ferry... More

Saluting Arabian Sea from Southern Mumbai, is a greatest of Architecture, The Gateway of India. Been there so many times, but every times it feels so new. The Colaba area nearby is the best market to shop, some of the best souvenirs and many Indian things. From Gateway One can catch Ferry for Elephanta caves which is altogether a new... More

Good to see for historical significance, perhaps to stir up thoughts of colonial rule and independence but as arches go it is not outstanding and poorly maintained. It was not crowded when I went but the usual photographers and would be guides were present. Somebody needs to invest some time and money to help this place.

if you are fine with crowds....and crowds from all hues and various social strata in mumbai then you will enjoy the place. families, friends throng to the place over the weekend, just to view the sructure and then also to enjoy a good breeze. Its incidental that the iconic Taj Hotel is stationed opposite this - you can either enjoy... More

Visit to the Gateway of India is a must. Would be advisable to take a taxi and go. Parking is a headache. Take a boat ride. It is worth it. Go inside the Taj and have a look. The best is to walk along the road to Colaba & walk back

Quite populated on weekends. Bad idea to go there on weekends. Good to visit on the evenings of the weekdays.

We stopped and others gad to walk around to the entrance and go thru security. You can get just as good a picture from the side. This reminds me of many columns I gave see elsewhere, including Arc De Triumph in Paris.

A must visit historic site which was built to commemorate the visit of King George V and Queen Mary to India. While there also take a boat or ferry to Elephanta Caves.
