The Middle Ground Coastal Battery is a legacy site of an antique beach front firearm battery overseen by the Indian Navy on an islet off the shore of Mumbai, India. It is arranged on Middle Ground isle in Mumbai Harbor, a couple of hundred meters from the Gateway of India, in Thane Creek. The Middle Ground Coastal Battery was once part of a reef, similar to the adjacent Oyster Rock. Center Ground islet is a bit of hard basalt shake, rising up out of the rivulet bed, having a territory of a couple of hundred square meters. The island is kept an eye on by a staff of eight mariners of the Indian Navy who stay in contact with the territory through radio interchanges.
At present the island fills in as the saluting base to the Flag Officer Commander-in-Chief FOC-in-C of the Western Naval Command. The old guns are ritualistically discharged alongside a cornet consider when another FOC-in-C takes office or when a maritime ship comes back to its home port in the harbor after an expanded arrangement. The structure stores ancient rarities of the pilgrim period, for example, earthenware baths, and so forth. An oceanic historical center possessed a segment of the isle, yet it was closed down in 2000 with the displays moving to the sea gallery of the decommissioned plane carrying warship INS Vikrant R11 when it was opened to people in general. Ensigns of old maritime boats are still put away on the isle.
