Glorious Flora Fountain and The Hutatma Chowk Memorial


On my way to Colaba recently, I saw a huge crowd around Flora Fountain and realized it was some political rally. Bloody nuisance. But I guess the only good that came of it was that they spruced up the old fountain and the adjoining - Hutatma Chowk Memorial Statue. It was for the very first time that I stopped, looked around and took pictures.

And they are some good snaps I must say.
Was a frequent commuter to Flora Fountain (Hutatma Chowk) to attend a class. That was about 40 years ago.
You must sell your pics.

Nicely clicked photographs I must congratulate you for that. I have been to Flora Fountain on many occasions but it has never occured to me to pause and click a few snaps. It gives a majestic feel to it and my ultimate shot would be Queen Victoria in Mumbai CST.
