Gateway of India, Mumbai

The Gateway of India in Mumbai is one of the most recognisable landmarks in the whole country, perhaps second only to the Taj Mahal.

It was constructed to celebrate the Royal Visit of King George V and Queen Mary in 1911. Unfortunately, it wasn’t actually completed until 13 years later! The King and Queen only got to see a cardboard mock-up of what the arch would eventually look like.

We got great views of this classic triumphal arch from the boat we took to and from the Elephanta Caves.

  5. Great story and photos, I didn’t know that it wasn’t actually finished in time for the royal visit.

I'd love to hear what you've got to say!
