Anyone who has a taste for quality architectural monuments should give a must visit at the Flora Fountain that is an ornamented and exquisitely sculpted architectural heritage monument. Located at D.N. Road in the heart of Southern Mumbai, this historic masterpiece is inspired from Flora - the Roman Goddess of Flowers. Constructed out of pure stone, the Flora fountain was built in 1864 and is a true fusion of water, architecture and high quality sculpting. This artistic fountain traces us back to the time when the Old Bombay Fort was demolished in 1860 under the order of Sir Bartle, who wanted to make an effort to improve civic sanitation and urban space requirements for the growing city. Named after the great Roman Goddess of Flowers called Flora, the four corners of this fountain are decorated with mythological figures that would obviously leave a striking impact on anyone. Costing around Rs. 47000 to Rs. 9000 pounds for its construction, Flora Fountain is the city's most famous landmark that definitely deserves a visit.
