Gateway of India Gateway of India is almost synonymous with Mumbai. It was built to commemorate the visit of King George V and Queen Mary to Mumbai, prior to the Delhi Durbar in December 1911. Visited by tourists and locals alike, the gateway and its promenade affords a great view of the boat-studded sea and is the connecting point for boat rides to and from the famous Elephanta Caves. The ?Elephanta Festival of music and dance? which was earlier held at the Elephanta caves, is now held in front of the Gateway in March every year. There are also shopping hubs nearby where you can get amazing knick-knacks, jewellery, and clothes at bargain prices. Wear cool clothing, keep yourself hydrated. Beware of pick-pockets and touts.
