The Taj Mahal Palace Hotel

Have you ever faced discrimination on account of race or colour? What has been your response to that? Well, whatever your response may be, we’re sure it won’t match up to Jumshedji Tata’s. As the story goes, after Jumshedji Nusserwanji Tata was thrown out of a Whites-only hotel nearby, he was humiliated but determined and he went on to build the Taj Mahal Palace Hotel. Built in 1904, this majestic structure even predates the Gateway of India. Considered Mumbai’s most luxurious hotel, some of the suites in the palace wing of the hotel can set you back by over Rs 100,000 a night. You may think it is not worth the money but remember, it does get you bragging rights for life, for this place has hosted everyone – from Gandhi to Jinnah, the Beatles, two American Presidents and recently even Prince William and Kate Middleton of the British Royal family. The Taj Mahal Palace Hotel is built in the Indo-Turkish architecture. The Turkish-style fat dome at the top gives it a standout look. You can also observe the beautiful balconies and the intricate carvings on some of the windows. Sadly, the hotel was one of main targets of the November 2008 terrorist attacks in Mumbai. At least 32 people lost their lives to gunfire from 4 terrorists here. While the Hotel was shut for a year following the attacks, it has since reopened and has been entertaining guests with its inimitable class. The hotel boasts of more than a few well-known restaurants like Wasabi, Golden Dragon, Shamiana, and the iconic Harbour Bar. For a nice view of the sunset by the bay, we recommend spending an evening for high-tea at the Sea Lounge.
