Flora Fountain

Hutatma Chowk

Located in the heart of Mumbai at Fort, Flora Fountain is also known as Hutatma Chowk or Marty's Square in honor of the patriots who laid their lives for the formation of Maharashtra.

Completed in 1864 and built in imported Portland stone, the Flora Fountain was erected by the Agri-Horticultural society of Western India out of a donation by Cursetjee Fardoonjee Parekh.

The memorial has the figure of the Roman Goddess of Flowers, Flora and next to her are a pair of torch bearing stone patriots that rise from the Martyrs Memorial nearby. Mumbai's infamous vendors selling just about everything occupy the square around the fountain.

Flora Fountain is in the middle of a major five-way intersection.
