A landmark is to be enjoyed without hindrance. But 26/11/2008 changed all that. Now barricades all over and an overbearing security means you can only see what the police wants you to see. Of course the sea still looks beautiful, the monument is still grand, the photographers still want you to try having your hand over Hotel Taj in a photo, but something is missing - maybe due to the barricades. One cannot go from the monument to the driveway along Taj and has to come out and take a circuitous route. That somehow plays on the mind and spoils the enjoyment. But, still a must see in Mumbai, if not anything else than for historic importance, the Taj, the sea and the grand buildings like Dhanraj Mahal in the vicinity.
