This beautiful structure made of Marble and all marble will leave you in awe. Infact the marble and the labours for this structure were brought from Jaipur ( Rajasthan well known for royal structures). Though this structure was built in memorial for Queen Victoria, all the efforts were Indian. There is a museum of oil paintings in the Hall for... More

It is a beautiful building, built by the British for Queen Victoria who never visited India. The surrounding are very well kept and people go about their business in a calm manner.

Though, this place is nothing in particular to be proud of us indians, but it reminds us of the bygone era. It's an architectural spendor, one of the most majestic buildings of the bygone era. the parks around the memorial are wonderful and nice place to have a stroll.

Gleaming white marble building completed in 1921 in the style of the Taj Mahal. The grounds are very well kept including water features and can be visited on their own at a small price without entry to the building itself. They are popular as a romantic walk for couples or for joggers getting some exercise. Externally the building is stunning... More
