The University

[Image] Most buildings in Mumbai were designed by architects who spent most of their working years in the city. The buildings of the University in the fort campus are the expection-- they were designed by the English architect Sir Gilbert Scott. The library and the 260 feet high Rajabai clock tower, with its marvellous sculpted figures, was funded by the 'Cotton King' and banker, Premchand Roychand. The convocation hall was funded by the man with the deepest pockets in Bombay-- Sir Cowasji Jehangir Readymoney.
