Mumbai: The Taj Mahal Palace secures India's first trademark registration for its iconic hotel building and dome

        Since 1903 its striking dome has been the triangulation point for the Indian Navy to guide them in to harbour, a steadfast symbol of the city’s resilience and a benchmark for Indian hospitality. Setting another first for the industry, The Taj Mahal Palace, Mumbai has secured image trademark rights for its elegant hotel building and its characteristic dome from the Government of India.
         The distinctive red-tiled Florentine Gothic dome, which crowns the elegant Indo-Saracenic arches and architraves of the hotel, sits 240 feet above street level. The hotel’s architects modelled this closely on the dome of the Victoria Terminus (now Chhatrapati Shivaji Terminus), when the hotel opened on 16 December 1903.

Commercial use of the images of its iconic dome and grand exterior will now be on prior written consent from Taj Hotels Palaces Resorts Safaris only.
