Situated overlooking the Arabian Sea at Apollo Bunder, the Gateway attracts visitors with its imposing structure, intricate carvings, and panoramic views of the sea. From leisurely strolls along the promenade to boat rides offering glimpses of Mumbai’s skyline, the Gateway of India remains a timeless symbol of the city’s charm and heritage – and also one of the top incentives in Mumbai.

The Elephanta Caves, a UNESCO World Heritage Site nestled on Elephanta Island in Mumbai Harbor, offer a captivating journey into India’s ancient history and artistic heritage. Dating back to the 5th to 8th centuries, these rock-cut caves are renowned for their exquisite sculptures, especially those dedicated to the Hindu god Shiva. Marvel at the intricate carvings depicting various mythological scenes, including the iconic Trimurti, a colossal three-headed bust of Shiva. The island’s serene setting, accessible by a short ferry ride from Mumbai, adds to the allure of this cultural treasure, making the Elephanta Caves a must-visit destination for history enthusiasts and art lovers alike. We think it’s one of the top incentives in Mumbai.
