Crawford Market is one of South Mumbai’s most famous markets. The building was completed in 1869, and donated to the city by Cowasji Jehangir. Originally named after Arthur Crawford, the first Municipal Commissioner of the city. Although the market was later renamed to Mahatma Jotirao Phule, it still uses his original name. The market is situated opposite the Mumbai Police headquarters, just north of Chhatrapati Shivaji Terminus railway station. You will find fruit and vegetable traders in the main building and also several pet shops. If you want to buy quality nuts of all kinds at a good price, go there.
The main market building is connected to many streets and it is the real paradise of merchants. Each street offers a different range of goods.
The Gateway of India is an arch-monument built in honor of the landing of King-Emperor George V and Queen-Empress Mary, the first British monarch to visit India in December 1911. At the time of the royal visit, the gateway was not yet built, and just a cardboard structure greeted the monarch. The foundation stone was laid in March 1913 for a monument built in the Indo-Saracenic style, incorporating elements of 16th-century Gujarati architecture. The final design of the monument by architect George Wittet was sanctioned only in 1914, and construction was completed in 1924. The structure is a triumphal arch made of basalt, which is 26 metres (85 feet) high.
In its immediate vicinity is the beautiful and luxurious hotel The Taj Mahal Palace.
