Gateway of India is an impressive monument constructed to commemorate the visit of King George V & Queen Mary to the then "Bombay" in Dec 1911. It is placed perfectly in South Mumbai & aptly called the Gateway of India. Built as a mammoth arch at a mighty height of 26 meters and has a inner width of 15 meters - its presence is symbolic to the city.

The monument is an representation of the Indo-Saracen architectural style, with many features of the 16th century Muslim architectural excellence. This monument almost stands as an identity of the city - flanked by the ocean on one side & the monumental Taj Hotel to the other.

Boat facilities are available in the nearby water front and tourists can enjoy the fantastic boat ride from Gateway of India to Elephanta Island.
