Easily Mumbai's most popular landmark, this yellow basalt arch was built to commemorate the visit of King George V in 1911. Designed by George Wittet, this imposing structure overlooking the Arabian Sea, was opened to the public in 1924 and since then it's been on every tourist itinerary besides being a favorite meeting point for the locals. Many launches depart from here for short joyrides around the harbor or for longer ones to the Elephanta Caves. Touts, balloon sellers, photographers, peanut vendors roam around the place to give it a unique buzz.
