This is surely a landmark in Bombay. About 30 years back the first shopping mall Akbarallys came up at Fountain. This place is very famous as lot of restaurants and colleges nerby.

Erected in 1869, in honour of Sir Bartle Frere, (governor of Mumbai1862-67)) to whose progressive policy Mumbai owes many of her great public buildings, and growth it is situated in the heart of the city, Decorated at its four corners with mythological figures, the Fountain is a structure in dull stone with a figure of 'Flora' the Roman Goddess of flowers, at the top. Today the Hutatma Chowk area is one of the busiest places in the city, with many banks, shops and offices surrounding it.
