It's a beautiful and impressive structure. It's an important landmark. It's crowded with tourists and the people that try to sell to tourists. You catch the ferry to Elephanta Island from here. The holy men that cruise the area want to tie a little thread on your wrist and say a prayer for you, and then want you to pay... More

C1 ( 2014.12.08 ) This attraction was Mumbai's landmark, and beautiful. Just 10 minutes could see all about this gateway. There was very many people crowded, and could see near Mumbai sea. And this place was port to Elephanta islands. But there was some tout, and they bothered me. Except tout, it was certain that there was worth to visit... More

Erected for the visit of King George V and Queen Mary in 1911 (although they only got to see a cardboard model as construction didn't begin until 1915), this was also the place from which the last British troops left India following granting of independence. It's a very solid monument and is a gathering place for tourists and locals alike,... More

Well, what is a visit to the financial capital, if one doesn't visit the Gateway - after all, this was the trade route from days of old. A must visit place. When kids see it, their history lessons in school becomes more meaningful. Wonderful sights all around, and a trip in the ocean to the Ajanta Caves is worth all... More

It was wonderful experience to visit Gateway of India again after many years. It is a true symbol of Indian democracy which invited all the people from around to world to visit India. However, when I saw the near by areas, the sea and all the boats ferrying people to Elephenta caves, I felt bad about the conditions. There were... More

Visited while in the area recently, and was able to tick another Mumbai landmark off the list. The Gateway is located in a nice part of Mumbai and opposite the Taj hotel, itself an iconic landmark for both good and bad reasons. We visited at night which made for some great colourful shots. I'd not travel right across Mumbai just... More

It's a great symbol of Mumbai, Whenever you will go there you will enjoy. I am a frequently going in the morning or late night. You have option for boat ride or you can hire a boat to go elephenta for a nice trip.
