Rajendra Misra, Senior Vice President - General Counsel, Taj Hotels Palaces Resorts Safaris, India
The Taj Mahal Palace, Mumbai is the flagship hotel of the renowned Taj group, an Indian hospitality major that owns and manages some of the best hotels, palaces, resorts and safaris in India, apart from other countries like the USA, UK, UAE, South Africa, Zambia, Sri Lanka, Malaysia, Maldives, Bhutan and Nepal. The Taj group is part of the reputed Tata group, which is a global enterprise headquartered in India, and having a global footprint across 100 nations.
The Taj Mahal Palace is one of the most iconic buildings in India. It is a defining structure in the skyline of Mumbai, India’s commercial capital, which is sometimes also referred to by many as the Manhattan of India. The distinctive red-tiled Florentine Gothic dome of the hotel crowns its elegant Indo-Saracenic arches and architraves. The imposing dome of the hotel sits 240 feet above street level. Since 16th December, 1903, when the hotel first opened its doors to guests, its striking dome has served as the triangulation point for the Indian Navy to guide them in the harbor. The hotel sits right on the waterfront, across the Gateway of India, a majestic sight as one sails into the harbor.
