Built to commemorate the arrival of King George V and Queen Mary to Mumbai, the Gateway Of India was opened to the Indian public on December 4, 1924. An iconic structure that is essentially a basalt arch, the Gateway is Mumbai’s most valued monument. From being a backdrop to the last British soldier leaving Indian soil to memorable concerts, the monument has always captured the city’s imagination. Here are ten unique photographs of this architectural beauty.
