The ‘Islamic Monuments in India’ exhibition was inaugurated yesterday at the Cultural Village Foundation Katara. The exhibition will run until October 4.

The inauguration ceremony was attended by Katara general manager Dr Khalid bin Ibrahim al-Sulaiti, Indian ambassador Sanjiv Arora, heads of diplomatic missions and dignitaries including Sheikha Athba bint Thamer al-Thani, chief support services officer, QDVC.

The exhibition includes 45 photos taken by the Indian photographer Benoy K Behl of the Islamic heritage in India.

While stressing the importance of the exhibition, Dr al-Sulaiti said it displayed the diversity of Indian civilisation and the country’s multi-cultural traditions, which he said reflected positively on India’s architecture.  

The Indian ambassador expressed his appreciation for the efforts of Katara to provide such a platform to showcase the exhibition to the Qataris and expatriates in the country.

Dr al-Sulaiti said Katara is always keen to hold such exhibitions to bridge the distance between the different cultures of the world.
