The Gateway of India is a monument in
Mumbai (formerly known as Bombay). It
is situated on the waterfront in Apollo
Bunder area in South Mumbai.

It was built for commemorating the visit of
King George V and Queen Mary to Mumbai
(then called Bombay). They came prior to the
Delhi Durbar, in December 1911. The
Governor of Bombay Sir George Sydenham
Clarke laid the foundation stone on 31 March 1911. In August 1914 the final design of
George Wittet was sanctioned. Between 1915
and 1919 work proceeded about
reclamations at Apollo Bundar for the land on
which the gateway and the new sea wall
would be built. The foundations were completed in 1920, and total construction was
finished in 1924. The Gateway was opened on
4th December 1924, by the Viceroy, the Earl
of Reading.

arch is of 26 Meters in height while the
central dome is 15 meters in diameter and is
