Places to Visit on a Mumbai Trip
Gateway of India:
This splendid landmark had been the sign of honor which was built to memorialize King George V and Queen Mary for their visit to India. They entered the city as they were on a Voyage to Mumbai. Gateway of India was designed by Mr. George Wittet who tried to blend the local, national and Muslim architecture. It was completed in 1924. Surely, you will feel your visit incomplete without visiting Gateway of India.
