Flora Fountain in Mumbai

Flora Fountain, at the Hutatma Chowk (Martyr's Square), is a heritage monument in South Mumbai in the Fort business district. It was built in 1864, during the British era. The fountain depicts the Roman goddess Flora, the goddess of flowers and spring. This is easily the most famous square in Mumbai, a point where five streets meet.Another statue (patriots holding torch) was added to the square in 1960, in memory of those who died in the struggle for the Maharashtra state.

In this photograph you can see the fountain with goddess Flora in the background and the torch-bearing patriots in the foreground. Some buildings around this square are also considered heritage buildings, like the on the extreme right of the image.
