Located on the Mall Road in the center of Kanpur, is the Phool Bagh, a park used as much for nature walks as for political and public meetings and rallies. Within the confines of the Phool Bagh is the Ganesh Shankar Vidyarthi Memorial Hall or the K E M Hall as it is popularly called. Also located inside the park is the Ganesh Udyan, a building that served as an orthopedic hospital when it was set up post World War One.
The vast area of the park can be judged by the size of these huge buildings within its confines. The location of these buildings makes them ideal for public meetings and is frequently used for such rallies. Also included in the cluster of buildings are the public library and the summerhouse, both of which attract a large number of people. The annual flower show of Kanpur is held within the premises of this garden.
