A great photograph is one that fully expresses what one feels, in the deepest sense, about what is being photographed, and is, thereby, a true manifestation of what one feels about life in it's entirety. . . I believe in photography as one means of achieving an ultimate happiness and faith! - Ansel Adams

Maximum City, Mumbai - Gateway of India


The Gateway of India, located beside the Arabian Sea in South Mumbai, is easily the most recognisable monument in Mumbai. No visit to Mumbai can be complete without soaking in the air over here. It is always teeming with people and bustling with activity, representing the vibrancy of this great city. Some of these are depicted below -








From the Gateway one can take ferries for the Elephanta Caves or enjoy short tours of the sea. There are a number of tourist attractions in the vicinity (particularly the Kala Ghoda area, which is also referred to as the Art District of Mumbai) such as the Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj Vastu Sanghralaya (Prince of Wales museum), Jehangir Art Gallery, National Gallery of Modern Art, David Sassoon Library, etc. Other hotspots in the neighbourhood are Cafe Mondegar & Cafe Leopold, Regal Cinema and some great eateries.
