The Gateway of India is an iconic structure in the Mumbai city of India. It was built during the 20th century. The monument overlooks the Arabian Sea and has become the very symbol of Mumbai. The architecture of the Gateway of India is Indo-Saracenic. The structure is managed by the Archaeological Survey of India.

The gateway is built from yellow Basalt and concrete. The structure was built to commemorate King George V and Queen Mary's visit to Mumbai. The Gateway has witnessed three terror attacks; two times in the year 2003 and once in 2008.
