Gateway of India
 

Gateway of IndiaA prominent landmark of Mumbai city, Gateway of India, is located at the end of the Shivaji Marg. This majestic stone arch on the shore of Mumbai Harbour commemorates the visit of King George V in 1911. It was designed by George Wittet to symbolise the enduring nature of the British Rule. It is made in Indo- Islamic style with honey-coloured basalt. The archway is 26 meters high and joined with four turrets and intricate latticework carved on stones. Behind the gateway there is a beautiful statue of the Maratha leader Shivaji, astride his horse, erected in 1960. A statue of the social reformer Swami Vivekananda also stands nearby.
