Horniman Circle Gardens, Mumbai: How To Reach, Best Time & Tips

About Horniman Circle Gardens

The Horniman Circle Gardens is one of the largest parks in the city of Mumbai. The garden was popularly called as “Bombay Green” in the 18th century, which was changed to “Benjamin Horniman” after India gained independence. This was meant as a tribute to the editor of the newspaper Bombay Chronicle, Benjamin Horniman.

The garden covers an approximate area of the 10,100-meter square and is surrounded by lush greenery and office buildings all around, most of which are the leading banks in the country. Construction of the gardens began originally in 1821, but the construction could not be completed for the next twelve years.

Only after India became independent in 1947, the garden was revived from the garbage dumpyard it had become after 1842. The park has a Historic Asiatic Society library in the enclosure for all those who wish to sit down and relax close to the garden. The gardens have perfect pathways and tall trees laid out in a neat fashion.
