Notes on the Geography of Peninsular India: Mumbai / Bombay: The VT and Taj Mahal Hotel: Photo 16
The Gateway appears in a million tourist-promotion photographs, but it's really pretty barren, not to mention wrapped by very murky seawater. An earlier version, in plaster, was built in 1911 for the visit of George V and Queen Mary--the first visit ever to India by a reigning British monarch. The gateway was then rebuilt by George Wittet as a permanent structure, but by the time all the thousands of yellow basalt blocks had been delivered from Gujarat and stacked for the masons, there wasn't much imperial pomp left.
