    Background: The graveyard of all but three of the old Royal Statues is behind the Albert Museum inside Victoria Gardens in Bombay. Those statues some of them deformed or disfigured by hool grans while they were in their original places, have been removed and placed adjacent to each other in this obscure spot, perhaps to be housed permanently later inside the museum itself.
