President inaugurates Presidential Guest House named Jal Kiran at Raj Bhavan in Mumbai

@CMOMaharashtra
President Ram Nath Kovind today inaugurated the Presidential Guest House named Jal Kiran at Raj Bhavan in Mumbai.The Guest House will serve as the accommodation for the President and the Prime Minister during their visits to Mumbai.

The President also unveiled a plaque in front of the refurbished and restored British-era twin cannons at Raj Bhavan. Governor C. Vidyasagar Rao, Chief Minister Devendra Fadnavis, Minister for Higher and Technical Education Vinod Tawde were present on the occassion.  

The discovery of two identical cannons each weighing 22- tonnes each, in the Mumbai Raj Bhavan estate last year has further added to its historicity, a press statement issued from Raj Bhawan said. Dating to the pre-World War I era, the cannons - 4.7 metres in length and 1.15 metres in diameter - were found under mud, 25 metres apart from each other, in the foothills of the Raj Bhavan promontory. 


The cannons, believed to have belonged to the battery near the coast as part of the defence of Bombay Castle from naval attacks, were first spotted by Raj Bhavan staff members during a tree plantation drive.
