The grand Gateway of India stands tall as one of the most recognizable landmarks in Mumbai, and indeed all of India. The Gateway, finished in 1924 to commemorate the arrival of King George V and Queen Mary, still serves as an operational port, and is the first landmark seafarers observe upon entering South Mumbai’s harbor. The stout basalt structure, designed by locally acclaimed architect George Wittet, blends signature Roman, Hindu, and Muslim architecture, that aptly embodies the diverse and welcoming spirit of the city.
