Gateway of India, Mumbai

This magnificent stone archway designed by Wittet was built to commemorate the visit of King George V and Queen Mary to India in 1911. The Gateway was built in Indo-saracenic style and from yellow Kharodi basaltis.

The archway is 26 meters high and joined with four turrets and intricate latticework carved on stones. An equestrian statue of Chhatrapati Shivaji and statue of Swami Vivekananda have been installed here.

Built at a cost of Rs 21 Lakh, the monument was opened on December 4, 1924 by the Viceroy, Earl of Reading.
