“Gateway of India”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 26, 2011

Gateway of India is very closely located to Chatrapathi Sivaji Terminus (CST). You can take a cab from there and reach within 10 mins.

Gateway of India is beautifully decorated by the scenic view of the sea from Land and Magnifience of The Taj from Sea.

You can take a ferry ride from the Gateway to Elephanta Caves.Don't Miss Gateway of India if you'd come to Mumbai

“A must in Mumbay”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 25, 2011

Crowded and at this time it was mansoon season. Mostly known as a meeting point.
Facing the Gateway of India is the remarquable Taj Mahal Palace.

Steeped in history. Sad commentary on indian tourism though...they havent maintained it and the poor thing looks lost on the seaside.

“Very average”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed December 23, 2011

After hearing all the hype about the Gateway of India, I made my way downtown only to be slightly disappointed. It's a very average monument teeming with visitors. It's location directly beside the Taj Palace makes it convenient to hit two birds with one stone, just don't expect too much. The visit won't take longer than 10 minutes.

“Crowded”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 22, 2011

These days this place seems to crowded with so many people. Just put me off as compared to years back when it was such a nice place to visit.
