At the southern tip of the erstwhile island of Mumbai was a small port where a fish called the palwa was brought to be sold. The British anglicised Palwa to Apollo, and called the port the Apollo Bunder. The Bunder gave way to a pier - the Apollo Pier - which grew into a reclamation in the late-19th century. Several iconic structures came up on the stretch around the pier, with the Gateway of India becoming the crowning glory in 1924. On our #GatewayGallop heritage walk, we explore the precinct to discover there's much to it than just the Gateway.
