Minto Park, one of the most popular tourist attractions has been re-christened Madan Mohan Malaviya Park. It is one of the most visited attractions for researchers.. The park is erected on a site which is located near the Saraswati Ghat in Yamuna.In addition, the park also holds an important position in the history of British India. This is because the park is constructed on the same place where Lord Canning read out the declaration of Queen Victoria's Proclamation in 1858. This step was however taken in the wake of Sepoy Mutiny, which occurred in 1857. The blatant corruption that prevailed in the ranks of the East India Company was the major reason behind this mutiny. This decision further resulted in transforming the status of India from that of an 'Economic Interest Zone' into a 'Colony'.In 1910, after 52 years of the incidence, Lord Minto laid a foundation stone for this park. The park was laid by the Governor General so as to commemorate the transfer of power. In addition, this park has a white memorial stone which is mounted by four ferocious looking lions.
