We loved the boat ride to see the Gateway of India. The area in front was closed with black divisions, they were preparing for a concert so couldn't take a picture. Too crowded.

It falls in an area called as Colaba in South Mumbai, the city part of Mumbai. A pristine structure from the British days and has the Taj Mahal Hotel in front both the old and new Taj. A good area for people to visit and probably take a boat ride at the Gateway. Generally crowded on weekends.

It is in the heart of Mumbai, the structure was build by the British many years ago. It is one of the oldest construction built with stones and still going strong, worth seeing.... hundreds of people come in the evening to see the beautiful waves of the sea lashing on the walls of the Gateway of India . You can... More

Gateway is synonymous with erstwhile Bombay and a major tourist attraction. We make it to visit here once in a while to have that old connect . Taking a sea cruise here is must to have cool breeze. Watching the towering taj hotel from across the road is added window to history. Pigeons feeding make it a good photo op

Really just a whole bunch of people looking at a hollow structure build by the British about a hundred years ago. Fun to say you were there I guess.
