This fountain is part of the Mumbai heritage but it looks these days out of place amidst that very busy traffic. It would be acceptable to move it to a more quiet location with more space around it and then it could become a central point of a square or park. You do not need more than 5 minutes to... More

The most I can say about this monument is that you should not visit it during rainy season as the fountain is not even running and there are no plants or flowers around it. It is a very unique statue/fountain, but I would not have known it was the flora fountain other than the fact that it was in the... More

Well this place has nothing as such except for corporate offices of banks and a few eateries. However if you are person who enjoys heritage then this place is a must. The building are old and have managed to retain their charm. I have always been an advocate of keeping the old building as they are instead of breaking them... More

This is supposed to be a historical spot of the freedom struggle. It has been refurbished a bit, but occupies a lot of space in downtown Mumbai.
