   wonderful experience to locate and discover the fountains once were the part of city
   furniture to beautify the city are today in a dilapidated state. Sometimes they go
   unnoticed even by the development officers. But, this project gave us lot of insight in
   knowing the scarcity and understanding the fear if this nature’s property should be
   preserved. Hence, conclusion was to be the suggestion for the remaining furniture,
   which even today is a part of the city how it should be preserved? What has to be
   done? How can civilians be a part in restoring this property of the city? It was great
   working for hospitality project as it dealt with social and economical aspect of 19th
   century of this most flourishing industry of today.
