Rani baugh, as it is called by the Local population,  (It was called  Victoria and Albert Garden) This Garden is situated in front of Byculla Railway Station (CR).  Now this garden is renamed as  'Veeramatha Jijabai bhosale udyan prani sangrahalaya' Apart from owning  the Zoo, the garden has some exotic trees, plants and shrubs. But due to lack of open space, the animals are not getting proper care. So some of the animals are transffered to 'Mysore Zoo garden'.

Another main attraction of this garden is,  many of the Statues which were removed from the main roads and circles, are brought and preserved here. Among them, is of Some Governors, and 'The Statue of King Edward VII',  is very prominent one. As the road widening was very essential,  The statue has to be removed. This statue was housed opposite to 'David Sasoon Library,' at Fort, Mumbai. In mid 60s this might have been removed from there, and fixed at Byculla Garden ! We can see 'Dr. Lad's Museum', which is 150 years old, in the premises of the garden. Recently this has been renovated by the Bombay Municipal Corporation. (BMC)

The Clock Tower

The Statue of  King  Edward VII, Son of Queen, Victoria, was erected at the Fort area, opposite to David Sasoon Library, Bombay,  in the year 1868 (Around that time), when he was still, Prince of Wales. 

'Prince of Wales' is the position, given to  the eldest son of the ruling King or the Queen of England, who will assume the position of a next  Monarch.  Accordingly, when  Queen Victoria died in the year 1901,  he became the Monarch !
