Street Name #76

Yakub Sahib Gardens are the transformed version of Jacob Gardens. The malli (jasmine) in the Ram Newas Gardens which are finer variety in India and its said that the Maharaja gave the order and Yakub Sahib made the Gardens. Near Dadashamakhan (Called Dasamakhan colloquially) at Otteri.

I like the Yakub/Jacob & the Lakshmi Drawing connection.
