Mumbai: The restoration of the iconic Flora Fountain in Fort area has been completed and the monument will be unveiled on Thursday.

“The restoration of Flora Fountain, named after Flora, the mythological Roman goddess of flowers, has been completed and it would be formally thrown open for public viewing on Thursday,” a senior civic official said.

 

However, the work of giving a face-lift to the area around the heritage structure and landscaping will take another few months to complete, they said.

The work to renovate the 153-year-old Gothic Revival architecture was given to the Indian National Trust for Art and Cultural Heritage (INTACH) by the BMC in September 2016.
