Legacy

Incorporated in 1899 by the founder of the Tata Group Mr.Jamsetji Tata, IHCL opened its first hotel, The Taj Mahal Palace, Bombay (now Mumbai) – in 1903. Dubbed as the best hotel East of Suez, this hotel transformed the face of Bombay and introduced authentic Indian hospitality to the world while bringing global luxuries to the country. The founder, Jamsetji Tata’s efforts were always to show India what lies beyond the seas, making India’s dreams his own. His vision of being the best of the best continues to drive us even today, as we prepare ourselves for the bright prospects and disruptive challenges of tomorrow.
