Gateway of India

Perhaps the ultimate symbol of Mumbai’s former colonial glory, the art deco Gateway of India stands guard over Apollo Bunder Harbour in the city’s south.

The three-arched monument was completed in the 1920s, commemorating the royal visit of King George V in 1911. Just a few decades later, the arch saw off Britain’s last remaining soldiers when India embraced Independence in 1948.

The gateway’s design has a Mughal flavor, topped with twin pinnacles and ringed with a top-heavy pediment.

Bring your camera when you come to visit, as today it’s one of the city’s most popular people-watching spots. Join the crowds of locals and visitors, touts and street photographers, food vendors, balloon sellers and kite flyers.

The arch is also the stepping-off point for harbor cruises, boat trips to Elephanta Island, and horse-and-carriage rides along the harborfront.

Practical Info

The Gateway of India is on the waterfront at Apollo Bunder Harbour, on the Colaba peninsula, south of central Mumbai.
