Western Railway Headquarters

The Western Railway Headquarters was originally known as the BB&CI Headquarters, short for Bombay Baroda & Central India Railways, which later became the Western Railway Company. The building was completed in 1899 by the same architect who designed the Victoria Terminus (CST), Frederick W. Stevens, and is considered one of the first examples of this unique architectural style which became commonplace in Bombay in the following decade. The monumental multi-domed building is currently on the "Tentative List", the first step in the process of joining UNESCO's World Heritage Site list.

Mumbai High Court and Rajabai Clock tower

The Bombay High Court was inaugurated on 14 August 1862. It is one of the oldest High courts in India. The work on the present building of the High Court was commenced in April 1871 and completed in November 1878. It was designed by British engineer Col. J.A Fuller.

The Rajabai Tower in South Mumbai is located in the confines of the Fort campus of the University. It was designed by Sir George Gilbert Scott, an English architect, and was modelled on Big Ben, the clock tower of the United Kingdom's houses of Parliament in London. The foundation stone was laid on 1 March 1869 and construction was completed in November 1878.

Gateway of India

The Gateway of India is one of the major monuments in the city, it is a distinct 26 metres (85 ft) high arch. Many elements of the arch are derived from the Muslim architectural styles of 16th century Gujarat, the pillars are derived from the design of Hindu temples and the design of the Gateway's windows derive from Islamic Architecture.

The Gateway of India was built to commemorate the visit of King George V and Queen Mary to Bombay (Mumbai), prior to the Delhi Durbar in December 1911. The foundations were completed in 1920, and construction was finished in 1924.

The building got the name the Gateway of India, because in the colonial era the Europeans entered India from this location, it was normally the first thing they would see while entering the country.
