Gateway of India, Mumbai
About Gateway of India
Located in South Bombay near Apollo Bunder, this is one of the most popular tourist spots of the city. This majestic piece of monument was built in the honor of King George V and Queen Mary’s arrival to India through this port in 1911.
On 1914, George Wittet’s design was finalized and this monument completed in 1924, since became one of the most impressive monument in the state. The architecture is a blend of the Roman triumphal arch and 16th century Gujarat architecture. The design is an amalgamation of Hindu and Muslim styles.
When India got its independence in 1947, the last British troop left India through this gateway as a mark of the end to their rule.
