The Gateway of India, one of the magnificent landmarks and the most photographed monument in Mumbai, was erected to memorialize the visit of King George V and Queen Mary to India in 1911. However the structure was finished barely years afterward after their visit.
The establishment of the Gateway of India was laid down in March 31, 1911 by the then Governor of Bombay, Sir George Sydenham Clarke. Design done by George Wittet, a Scotland architect, the structure was finished in 1924 AD and was opened for public on December 4, 1924 by the Viceroy, the Earl of Reading
