Wellington Fountain is the focal point & part of the larger roundabout called Regal Circle.
Although a familiar sight to all who frequent this popular area I do wonder how many people actually make it over to the fountain. The road is busy & takes a bit of crossing on foot. There is a wide hard standing area once you make it over & a few cars parked there.
The fountain itself has a little garden around it which adds to it's attractiveness.
Originally installed in 1865 in honour of the 1 st. Duke of Wellington , Arthur Wellesley , the fountain was cleaned & restored in 2016 - 17. There are decorative panels & some inscriptions describing the Duke's achievements. All was functional & I was glad to have made the effort to cross over & take a closer look.
Some attention to litter clearance would be good.

The fountain was nice to look at but it was hard to get close due to all the traffic and the fence around the fountain area itself. The fountain is only on a part of the roundabout so can be easy to miss.

It was built in 1865 in memory of the Duke of Wellington, a loyal servant of the British Crown who visited Bombay in 1801 and 1804. The fountain was one of the first impressions of the city the visitor arriving via Gateway of India had. Hailed for being one of the first men to write on the philosophy of the Indian famine, the Duke was honoured with this monument. It was built in the Neo-Classical style at a cost of Rs 12,000 by public subscription, the fountain’s site was chosen by Henry Conybeare, where the Duke had occupied tents of residence (Esplanade) during his visits. Designed by Lt Colonel JJ Scott, its construction was overseen by General Augustus Fuller
