Mumbai
 
 

Mumbai is the most populous city in India and it is also one of the most populous cities in the world. Mumbai is also the richest city in India.


The Gateway of India is an important monument in the city of Mumbai. It was built to welcome King Gorge V and Queen Mary, during the British rule in India. It is a huge structure which has latticework carved into yellow basalt stone. When the British rule in India ended, this was the place from which the last British ships left the harbour. You can also go for a short motorboat trip into the Arabian Sea from the Gateway.

 

Marine Drive was called the Queen’s Necklace, as the street lights on this road, seemed to form a necklace of precious jewels. This place has the concrete jungle of Nariman Point on one side and the Arabian Sea on the other.
