Statue: Prince of Wales

Statue: Albert Edward Prince of Wales (1879) 

subsequently Edward VII (1841-1910), Victoria Gardens, Parel Road, Byculla.

In 1965, the Kala Ghoda (black horse), as the bronze statue of Albert Edward Prince of Wales was colloquially called, was deported to the Byculla zoo, turning its original location in the city centre into a parking lot.

The Kala Ghoda Arts Festival, Bombay’s most popular annual celebration, which enters its 16th year, reclaims both the statue and the locality in which it first flourished.

The kala gora is captured by Mr Patel, who’s got a lovely daughter.
