The Kipling bungalow, housed in Sir JJ school of Art campus in South Mumbai, and named after the famous writer, novelist, poet and author of Jungle book stories ‘Joseph Rudyard Kipling’ will be preserved as a tourist attraction.
Although Kipling was born in 1865 in a house adjacent to where the bungalow stands today, the bungalow has been known as Kipling Bungalow for ages now.
The structure carries an ornate metal plaque (engraved with the words, “Rudyard Kipling, son of Lockwood Kipling, first principal of Sir J. J. School of Art, was born here on 30.12.1865.”) and a bust commemorating Kipling’s connection to the bungalow, and also to the art school campus.
The Jungle Book is a collection of stories by English author Rudyard Kipling; the stories were first published in magazines in 1893–94. Watch ‘The Jungle Book’ Cartoon Show ,br/>
For decades now, the Kipling side of the bungalow has been the official Dean’s Residence of the dean of Sir J. J. Institute of Applied Art.
Every year, Rudyard Kipling’s Bungalow attracts several Kipling-enthusiasts from all over the world.
