If you are planning to book tickets for Mumbai, we recommend, you take some time out to visit these iconic cultural places.

Gateway of India

Located at the Apollo Bunder area, The Gateway of India is the face of Mumbai, and was built during the British rule, in order to celebrate and honour a visit by Queen Mary and King George V to Mumbai (then known as Bombay). Situated in the southern part of the city, on the coast of the Arabian Sea, the Gateway of India is said to be one of the most photographed structures in the city.

Elephanta Caves

Considered to be one of the main cultural lures in Mumbai, Elephanta caves are visited by thousands of art lovers, history-buffs and various local and foreign tourists. The caves are located at Gharapuri, which is also known as the Elephanta Island. Located on the extreme edge of the city, the caves are divided into Hindu and the Buddhist categories. In the Hindu caves, you will see the rock cut sculptures dedicated to the Shaiva Sect in Hinduism; on the other hand, Buddhist monuments adorn the Buddhist caves.

Haji Ali Dargah

The dargah is situated on a splendid island near the coast of Worli in the South of Mumbai. The dargah is widely known for its cultural and religious importance and is open to people of all faiths. The tomb and the mosque both reflect a strong blend of Indo-Islamic Architecture. At high tide, the walkway leading to the dargah from the mainland remains submerged. Thousands of people visit the dargah everyday.
