Dog statue


Have you seen this statue before! I think, it's the only statue made for a dog in Mumbai. If there are any others that you know of , do let me know. Any guesses on the location ?

This statue which is a memorial to the family pet dog is located inside the compound on the right as you enter Esplanade House. Esplanade House was the residential mansion of Jamsetji Tata and is a beautiful heritage building. It is located next to Alexandria School on Hazarimal Somani Marg ( the road behind Bombay Gymkhana)

So next time you are at Fashion Street or Fort/Fountain do look up Esplanade House and the statue of the dog.
