The Taj Mahal Palace — including the original palace wing and a tower erected in 1973 – is the flagship property of Taj Hotels Resorts and Palaces, with breathtaking views of the Arabian Sea and the Gateway of India landmark.

When hunger strikes, the hotel features ten restaurants providing food from across the world, including Wasabi by Morimoto (Japanese), Golden Dragon (Chinese), Masala Kraft (contemporary and Indian), and Souk (Asian) (Eastern Mediterranean).

The Taj Mahal Palace was built in the early 1900s for £250,000 (approximately £27.5 million in today’s money) and underwent major repairs following the bombing and gun assaults that killed 164 people throughout Mumbai.
