Regretably the whole fountain is currently under extensive long term renovation but it is possible to have a quick if not extensive and appreciative look behind the scenes - which demonstrates the elegance of the fountain when in full swing. A picture of the fountain in better days adorns the canvas covering that has enveloped it.

Historical site, but so surrounded by hawkers that its easy to miss. it is not functional anymore and the outer fence was used as hanger for clothes! Though there is gorgeous bookstore right behind it called 'The Kitab Khana' that was worth the hike!

This place is as old as Mumbai when Mumbai was Bombay. Today this place has major roads connecting each other. Nearby area you will find many China products sold. You will also find a pirated books sold here. There are few corporate offices nearby .

It is a landmark in south Mumbai and not really a place to plan a visit and keep in your travel plan.

This beautiful "Portland Stone" monument depicts "Flora", the Roman mythology goddess associated with nature, vegetation, flowers and the Spring season! The monument was built, in 1864, exactly at the site where the old "Church Gate" of the demolished "Mumbai's Fort" stood and was envisaged as a source of pure water to Mumbaikars. It is erected on the "Hutatma Chowk" (or... More

This is the central business district of Mumbai. The Flora Fountain is situated in the central area and used as a round about for vehicular traffic in the Fort area. This is merely a photo stop to click a photograph of the fountain. The surrounding area is used as a parking lot. At night the area is illuminated.
