It is a Gateway. Just a place where tourist can be ripped. Drive by slowly and move on. There are a lot of "photographers" that want to make pictures from you with the gateway. Don't do that. The quality is not that good and not worth the money.

We stayed at the Taj Hotel across the road and the WHOLE experience is NEVER to be forgotten. Got some great sunrise photos, and it was not as busy as during the day. Worth arriving just before 7am!!

A place where actually history knocks on your head, if you know about its past its beautiful to be there and watching the actual gateway of India, although very much crowd is there so bit fishy.. rest enjoyable..

A walk around the Gateway to India is to be around not just a historic monument but, with the ferry boats coming and going, to be in a bustling, exciting hub.

Best way to enjoy is sit for sometime there and enjoy sea,enjoy peoples wandering.Its really indian gateway to see its hugeness,its strength.This monument has seen much good and bad things during its age.Really feel proud to be there.you can take ferry ride there.But be careful when safety matters because some ships became very old,unmaintained so avoid if such situations.

I'm not sure how to describe The Gateway of India it's like a big Marble Arch but with a better view. Right now the Indian police have most of it cordoned with large yellow barriers. Sadly this doesn't add to the view but it does provide the security for which we were very grateful. I have to say that all... More

gateway of India is very magnificent and majestic. Its a must visit. due to security concern one should avoid taking bags,. There are long queues due to security check,but entry is free. One can take a ferry to Elephanta caves and also sea cruise.
