Gateway of India Tours

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.
