Cowasjee Jehangir Convocation Hall - commonly known as the Convocation Hall of the University of Mumbai.
The year was 1857 and the foundations of Modern Education (under the British) were laid down in #Mumbai
by erecting this building (although Elphinstone College was established a few years prior to this).
(Neo-Gothic) of the building was designed by Sir George Scott on the lines of Universities in London. It was an amalgamation of European Architecture and local #Indian
culture which can be seen at various places in the building. The donation for the building was singlehandedly done by Cowasjee Jehangir and hence in his name as that was the criteria British followed in those days.
The sculptures erected were designed by the JJ School of Arts students. It also has one of the best stained glasses in the city.
The building is part of 84 other buildings from Mumbai which received the #UNESCOWorldHeritage
status in 2018
