Site: Savarkar at India House (1 memorial)

N6, Cromwell Avenue, 65

Strangely the plaque does not mention that this building was known as India House, 1905 - 1910, and is considered so important in the history of Indian Home Rule that a life-size replica has been erected in India at the birth-place of its founder, Shyamji Krishna Varma.
