"Clean, beautiful, attractive buildings"

It's a decent place to visit with our family. As it is located near the lake, the environment is calm and cool. Also taj Hal hotel can be visited the same time. All food are very costly, so carry from home.

"We love gateway of india. This place is very iconic"

  • 5.6/7
  • Posted Dec 22, 2017
This place is an iconic landmark in Mumbai. Just oppyto this is the very famous Taj Mahala Palace hotel. I recommend going to both as both are iconic places and offer great experience. Evening is the best time to visit with lots of crowd.
