Why to visit Victoria Memorial
This beautiful white marble building was created in Queen Victoria's honour to commemorate her 25 years of rule over India, and is nearly identical to the Victoria Memorial in London.The memorial is encircled by a lush green and well-maintained garden with several statues and sculptures that spans 64 acres.
The purpose for the construction of such a massive monument is certainly intriguing. Lord Curzon's beautiful artwork was made to honour the Queen's twenty-fifth year reign over India.
At the summit of the memorial, a sixteen-foot tall bronze statue of victory mounted on ball bearings adds to the overall charm and grandeur of the complex.
The Victoria Memorial is awe-inspiring and magnificent, especially when illuminated at night. The nighttime Sound and Light performances are an added bonus and a must-see. Overall, the location is a must-see for everyone interested in reliving the essence of the Victorian era in the current world.
