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.
Sunsets and rainy days are star attractions at the Gateway. Sunsets because of the brilliant colors and the perfect view of the sea, and rainy days because of the gushing high-tide waves.
