The Arabian story of Mumbai – Flora Fountain

Flora Fountain is an exquisitely sculpted heritage monument named after Flora … It sensed as though I have taken a sacred round of a sacred place …

I had frequented Fort Mumbai several times, however had skipped visiting the ‘Flora Fountain’ because it is a fountain so what would be unique about it? … I always had this doubt unless until I visited this place located at the square, where five streets meet, which is a walking distance of about 10 minutes from Chhatrapati Shivaji Terminus (CST).

The Description: Flora Fountain is an exquisitely sculpted heritage monumentFlora, the Roman Goddess of flowers and the season of spring adorns the top of the fountain and the four corners of the fountain are adorned with mythological figures. It was built in 1864 and is a fusion of water, architecture and sculpture.

Its beauty blossoms with the spout of water, I took these pictures of the fountain when the sun marvellously shined above the fountain and its beauty flourished. I revolved around the fountain clicking snapshots of its four sides and it sensed as though I have taken a sacred round of a sacred place.
