The Gateway of India serves as a guardian of the Colaba area of Mumbai facing the Arabian Sea. Built over 100 years ago, this iconic structure costs 2.1 million Rupees in that time.

If you visit the Gateway in March, you can soak in the annual ‘Elephanta Festival of Music and Dance’.

The most beautiful place to catch wonderful photos in Fort Cochin is in the Chinese Fishing Nets area. It is also the best place to learn about the daily life of Cochin fisherman.

Chhatrapati Shivaji Terminus, also known as the Victoria Terminus, is the most emblematic building of the buzzing city Mumbai. The favored gothic aesthetic was fashionable in England that time, but architects in Bombay still had to work with Indian craftsmen, material, motifs, and climate. The result was incredible – a wonderful building with the style that then is called “Bombay Gothic”.
