Gateway Of India

The Gateway of India is one of India's most unique landmarks situated in the city of Mumbai. The colossal structure was constructed in 1924. Located at the tip of Apollo Bunder, the gateway overlooks the Mumbai harbor, bordered by the Arabian Sea in the Colaba district.

The Gateway of India has witnessed a glorious history. At the time of the end of the British rule in the country, the Gateway was thought of as a sign of the British rule. The only British regiment that was left in the country was the First Battalion of the Somerset Light Infantry. On the 28th of February in the year 1948, this regiment too left the country. As the regiment took its last steps through the Gateway of India, the ceremonious monument was forever etched in the pages of history.
