At the Hutatma Chowk, Flora fountain is an exquisite heritage architecture at the southern end of the Mile Long Road or historic Dadabhai Naoroji Road. Built in 1864, it depicts the Roman goddess Flora. It is currently under long term renovation. Do see the Hutatma chowk and the Book street, next to Flora fountain if you are there.

This iconic landmark dates back in time from ye olden days... Well sculpted, the fountain is installed in the Fort area near the southern tip of India's commercial capital.

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 .
