    built in order to welcome the king and since then stands proudly. Fun fact: it was built after the taj hotel which stands in front of it as well. Standing there after 11 pm is prohibited

    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.

    This arch, the most prominent structure of Mumbai, was built to commemorate the 1911 Royal visit. Ironically, post independence, the last of the British troops set sail for England from this gateway.
