Be Spotted In A Mughal Court - PH

PhotoHunt theme : Spotted

guests enjoying themselves 

I was given a sneak peek of the upcoming blockbuster exhibition called Treasury of the World at the Asian Civilisations Museum on Thursday night. This is its first time in Asia after visiting prestigious museums like the Louvre in Paris and the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York.

an exhilarating dance

Guests got to dress up in Mughal costumes and try a henna tattoo. We were entertained by traditional ethnic Indian dancers who also taught several guests some Indian dance movements. :D

I'm very fascinated with Indian culture and am looking forward to this exhibition where a stunning collection of more than 400 exquisite jewelled works of art - from household items to ornate necklaces and ceremonial swords - from the glorious era of Mughal-ruled India will be displayed.

You can also learn about life in the Mughal court, from leisure pursuits to food and weaponry of the royal family. Gain a fascinating insight to the diverse techniques in the jewelled arts used by the artisans and craftsmen during this period.
