An instant getaway. But mind you its only for ladies. The reason for such exclusivity in a nonresidential area is beyond logic. It appears more to be an extension to Burns Garden now. Conveniently located near Shaheen complex, its a pity that its known by its proximity to Shaheen complex now. It is being renovated and only few stones have survived since its inauguration in 1927. The gates are not open yet giving access to the terrace only from the national museum entrance. There was no one on a Saturday morning. No intruders. No women.
Founded as a tribute to famous philanthropist Sobhraj Chetumal who is popularly known for building a small dispensary with a maternity ward in memory of his wife Kishan Devi Sobhraj, the terrace has been renovated restoring its original shape. However the work has not completed and seems stuck at final stage when few final touches are needed. Apparently no staff has been assigned for its maintenance. People at the museum don’t know much about its fate also.
Its still worth a visit. Thank you Mr. Sobhraj Chetumal.
