The Gateway of India, (Bombay), India

I wander around the broad and leafy streets of Mumbai. I’m up early and the empty streets are refreshingly quiet. I head over to the Gateway to India. It’s a grand monument, but the work going on around is hectic.

Information: The Gateway of India was opened in 1924 to commemorate the arrival of Britain’s King George VI. The royal yacht would have landed at the Gateway, and it would have been an impressive sight. The British left India 24 years later through the same arch. Today it is a popular meeting place for people and also serves as the exit point for the ferries to Elephant Island.

I wander around the fort for a little while, taking some photos.
