The colossal monument overlooking the Mumbai harbor, the Gateway of India is synonymous with the metropolis. Built in Indo-Saracenic style and designed by the Scottish architect George Wittet, the gateway was the ceremonial entrance to India for Viceroys. The beauty of this ‘monumental memento’ is that the arch is of Muslim style complemented by the decorations of Hindu style. Opposite the gateway stands the statue of the Maratha king Shivaji and there is also a sculpture of Swami Vivekananda in the vicinity.
