This place is full with people. Just be careful of your belongings, but not to worry as polices are around that area. It's quite safe I would say. You need to go through a security scanning and bag-check before entering the place. It is well-maintained, and has a proper history description of this building. It's nice to view it, regardless...

A well known place in Mumbai in front of the famous hotel the Taj. The place is always crowded 24/7. Most of the tourist visits this place when they are in Mumbai. A must visit place once you are in mumbai

Quite a crowd, but that is no surprise in a city of more than 22 million inhabitants. We were lucky to witness a military band playing under the main arch of the Gateway building. It certainly added to the flavor. I personally prefer the Arc the Tromp in Pasris though.

It is usually the top most to-visit place for any one visit Mumbai. But the crowd here is always a shocker especially the weekends. The road leading to the gateway becomes a sea of people walking only in one direction i.e. towards the gateway. Do note that you will get harassed time and again by a photographer for instant photos.... More

The place is good but didn't get much info when we visited it. We had to look it up on the Internet as to what gateway of India means. Opposite there is taj hotel which is stunning. The view is good but the water seems to b really polluted. Loads of public though. Security is good but can b better... More
