Iconic Taj


The Taj Mahal Palace opened in Mumbai, then Bombay, in 1903, giving birth to the country’s first harbour landmark. The recently trademarked flagship hotel overlooks the majestic Gateway of India. This was the Hotel that the terrorists attacked on 26th November 2008. The clear blue sky with a lone bird flying is the perfect backdrop.
