This ornamental gateway was built for the visit of King George V and Queen Mary's visit to India in December 1913.
It stands on the bay and near the Taj Palace Hotel. When we were there Dec 2007, restoration/beautification of the area was going on, so good photographs were not easy to take. Hawkers, beggars and tourists flock to the area, so it can be very crowded.

Address: On the Marine Drive
