Victoria Gardens or Rani Jijamata Udyaan also called Rani Bag is located at Byculla in the heart of Mumbai. Laid out in 1861, Victoria Gardens is essentially a Zoo and houses the Victoria and Albert museum, a rich repository of Mumbai's industrial and agricultural past.
Sprawling over 48 acres having some of the oldest trees in the city, Jijamata Udyan has a rich botanical garden with a host of rare species of plants carefully preserved for studies and guaranteed visual feast. The Victoria Garden also houses a giant statue of an elephant that was
brought originally from the Elephanta Caves.
There is a fascinating Renaissance Clock Tower at the entrance of the
Rani Bag that echoes the Italian and Renaissance style of architecture.
When in the Zoo you could go for a joy ride on an elephant, however, you
cannot afford to miss out a leisurely stroll through the verdant
botanical gardens. Go pack your bags for a fun-filled picnic amidst this
carefully manicured Victoria Gardens and relish a part of the history
that emanates from the museum that lies in its precincts.
