Fontaine Jubilee de Diamond

Seychelles / Africa

The Fountain Jubilee de Diamond was designed in 1900 to commemorate Queen Victoria’s Diamond Jubilee. It is situated on Independence Venue. This fountain has a statue on top which depicts Queen Victoria. However, this statue bares little resemblance to her. It is a replica of a porcelain original which can be found in the National Museum. Today this statue stands as a reminder of Seychelles history under the British Empire. It also portrays the close relationship that the Seychelles has with Britain today, due to the fact it is still standing. Despite being remarkable to look at, many locals don’t know that the water is drinkable.
