The Gateway of India is a monument built to commemorate the landing of their Majesties King George V and Queen Mary at Apollo Bunder, when they visited India in 1911.

It is located on the waterfront in South Mumbai, directly opposite the Taj Mahal Palace & Tower Hotel and overlooks the Arabian Sea.

Opposite the gateway stands the statue of Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj and the other statue in the area is that of Swami Vivekananda. The Gateway of India is a major tourist destination and a popular gathering spot for locals, giant-balloon sellers and photographers.
