We visited the original business centre so coming to see the site was on our route. The main attraction is the location at a busy hub, surrounded by the usual hustle and bustle. We walked round the site, not least to see the grass depiction of Maharashtra. Actually, the monument itself is not especially notable architecturally, but if you are... More

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

A poetic expression of Flora: A Glass and concrete jungle; In its midst always Quiet, comely, With hope filled face, she stands Flora These days, It is known as Hutatma Chowk in... 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

Exactly located in the heart of Colaba, this is nothing more than a mediocre fountain, there are millions more beautiful than this around the world, but personally it has a dramatic effect in the context of chaotic urban planning of the city, although it may seem mediocrity, every so glad to run into a sculptural work like this in a...
