  6. Feeling nostalgic after going through the prominent structures in mumbai. We have once studied it in detail during our second year.Every time i visit them,all these marvels make me to fall in love with. I can resist here to share that most of these structures are of indo-saracenic architectural style which got evolved in 19th century in british india.they drew the elements from ancient indian and indo Islamic architecture and combine it with gohic revival and neo classical Victoria British style.most of the sculptures and art pieces had been crafted in jj college of art and architecuture. I think I have to stop here or it will be too lengthy comment.
