The 133-year-old Joseph Baptista Gardens, located at the Bhandrawada Hill in Mazagaon area of south Mumbai is being transformed â€"and it would house miniatures of the Seven Wonders of the World.

The Brihan Mumbai Municipal Corporation (BMC) has already started working on the Rs 2.60-crore project.

The idea was mooted by former corporator Yamini Jadhav, whose husband Yashwant Jadhav is the Leader of the House and a sitting corporator.

The replicas to come up here include The Statue of Christ The

Redeemer (Brazil), State of Liberty (USA), Leaning Tower of Pisa and The Colosseum (both, Italy), Eiffel Tower (France), Chichen Itza Pyramid (Mexico) and the Taj Mahal (India). 

Each replica will come up on specially designed plots inside the garden and include a brief history and description of the particular monument, to be decorated by special colour-changing LED lights and special lamps.

"Not only it is going to boost tourism, it would also educate people about these tourist spots," said an official of the BMC.
