Rakhee Ghelani

The Flora Fountain is also known as Hutatma Chowk and was built in 1864.  Located in Southern Mumbai, it was constructed by the Agri-Horticultural society of Western India. This Roman Goddess graces this busy intersection that is near to CST station and Bombay University.

The best way to see the Flora Fountain may be to view it street-side, where you can also look at the many local street markets and high street stores. You can get up close to the fountain, but just watch out for the traffic. At nighttime, the fountain is illuminated, which makes it a great time to view it. The fountain is open 24 hours a day, so you can even stop by in the early morning when there is less traffic and it is more peaceful.
 
Sculpted from Portland stone and painted in brilliant white, Flora Fountain was designed by R. Norman Shaw.
