We invite you to share our heritage – ancient but dynamic. Experience our colourful and exotic world-famous fabulous fashions—the flowing sari, the whirling lehenga, and the vibrant shalwar-kamiz. Did you know that the elaborate embroidery and stone-work you see in many western film celebrations come from India?
Behold our extraordinary jewelry with hand-crafted intricacy that is the envy of the world. See our world of fairy-tale architecture that is real and part of a living tradition today. Join in our lively entertainment that has evolved over thousands of years. Marvel at dances so beautiful, that they have been adopted by numerous Southeast Asian countries centuries ago. Dances that are still spreading around the world today: the classic Bhartanatyam,
the sensuous Odissi, the graceful Kuchpudi and Mohini Attam, the abstract Kathakali drama, and the lively
Kathak. Don’t miss our equally vigorous Bhangra folkdance, the ever-popular Bollywood style; plus, other lively, colourful dances from India’s culturally diverse states. Savour mouth-watering flavourful food, and tantalizing sweets that are carefully prepared for your personal enjoyment, so good you’ll want seconds.
Share insights into one of the world’s most influential cultures by taking in our carefully assembled displays designed to challenge you and provoke thoughtful examination. For millennia, our thousands of ethnic groups
speaking more than 1600 languages have been sharing their knowledge of spirituality, yoga, Ayurvedic mdicine, science, mathematics, literature, art, architecture, music and dance. Remember to bring your camera to capture
all of your wonderful experiences at the Indian Pavilion!
