Built to commemorate the visit of King George V and Queen Mary in 1911, the Gateway of India has been the focal point of tourism in Mumbai. While millions of tourists, both Indian and foreign, take in the city on tourist buses and Mumbai darshan tours, the Gateway itself has been closed to visitors for over a year now. The last time it found itself in the news was following the 26/11 terror attack on the Taj Mahal Hotel after which BSF as well as local policemen moved into the precincts of the heritage structure to stay there. An Afternoon Despatch and Courier report later, the activity came to a halt and the original use of the structure was restored.
