  • Iconic symbol of the city. I loved the place... It is one of the best heritage place in the middle of busy city. The best thing about this place is the wonderful architecture of the monument. Victoria Memorial is known worldwide built during British rule in India for the queen. Inside the memorial there is a museum where you can see the dresses of the queen.... There are different kinds of weapons which are kept over there that were used during that era. There are various other things as well that you can see .....One can explore inside Victoria memorial. The structure of the memorial is just amazing and mesmerizing.... It is very attractive to look at. The chariot ride in front of the Victoria Memorial gives a memorable experience to all the person. The fountain show in front of the memorial is just awesome. Overall it's a perfect place for outing with friends and family.
