Nice place in the evening.. Enjoy the sea.. A ferry ride and then enter TAJ hotel for a coffee or a beer.... Amazing location.. Memory of 26/11/2008...The terror attack
Mumbai has remarkable architecture and you can really discover the Bombay of old on one of these, created by two architects. Walk around the Kala Ghoda area, Dockyard Road, and Colaba Causeway.
Security check compulsory and then check in on foursquare! Some bars Mondegar, Leopold are stone's throw away...Regal theatre for AC big screen indulgence.
The Gateway of India is of course, the logical place from where to begin your tour of Mumbai. After all, you're following in the footsteps of royalty!

If you are tourist like me, you can get some photos for about 30rs each. A nice souvenir.
Truly an amazing place. Do not miss ferry ride. You will surely enjoy a lot.
It is one of the most recognized monument in India...Best time to visit this historic place would be at dusk I guess..
Step back and admire Mumbai from the sea during the expedition organised by Gateway Sailing Club.
If you're on the morning journey, try the upper deck. Only additional Rs10 applied. But a big no for the afternoon session!
Don't go during festivals. The crowds are just too much to deal with.
A ride in a boat is awesome, and also gets fantastic view of gateway of India and taj palace
Super awesome monument....but but but check out the amount of plastic waste in the water behind it! :-(
Quintessentially Mumbai. A magnificent structure and a wonderful piece of history.
Super crowded, looks better at night. Avoid people who try to take photos of you.
The monument is really impressive. Be ready for a security check to enter this zone.
Beautiful at night, the indian flag colors are reflected as lights in the monument.
The architectural and historical importance of dis place
Famous for being the first landmark visible to those coming to Mumbai by the sea!
Be sure to enjoy some Chai from a Chaiwala whilst here.
Beware of guys who approach and ask to take photo with you.
So crowded that there is even security control. From here you can catch a cheap ferry to cross the bay
Be prepared to cross through other boats to reach yours. Mind your step!
Get your photograph clicked by camera guys there....irrespective of what camera you take or how professional you are.
Missing your creative spark? A visit to this incredible monument will help you find it again.
One of the most important landmark we got from the British
High expectations, disappointed. Kinda tiny and trashy around.
