The Flora fountain was so named after Flora, The Roman Goddess of Flowers. It stands right next to a very busy road junction offering a small oasis of calm. The sun can make it difficult to take photographs. This one I had to take of the back as the sun was behind the monument. My Trip: If you want a... More

Felt so good to visit Mumbai again and walk through the cultural center of the city. Flora Fountain is considered to be the cultural epicenter of the city with major landmarks and tourist attractions in close vicinity. Many of the walking tours include this attraction on the itinerary. ‘Hutatma Chowk’ and the ‘Eternal Flame’ are right next to this fountain.... More

Tuesday 1st December, walking around Mumbai on our sightseeing tour and we saw this impressive fountain. It was not working on the day we visited, despite that it was worth a visit. The fountain was surrounded on all sides by traffic. It is worth a look, does not take long as there is not a lot to see.

It is one of the most famous spots in Mumbai. Many Bollywood movies have been shot here. The name Flora comes from Roman Goddess of Flowers whose beautiful sculpture is on the top. It was constructed by the Agri-Horticultural society of Western India in 1864 and designed by R. Norman Shaw. The square in which the fountain is located was... More

A legacy of the British Empire. This was a major beauty spot, surrounded by majestic buildings & lots of space. To appreciate it fully look at old photos. Beautiful

Flora Fountain may have been beautiful once upon a time. Now it is just a small stone monument that is greying and not very well maintained.

The fountain is situated at the chowk and is easily accessible.To have a full lovely view of it , you need to visit during evening time when the lights are on around the fountain. It is an exquisitely sculpted architectural fountain and is very old architecture. Its very near the CST railway station, around 10 mins walk through the bazaar.
