‘Torana’ Gate, Kuala Lumpur

4.4
A timeless reminder of Indian artistry, ‘Torana’ Gate honors the friendship between India and Malaysia. A gift from the Indian government, the gate was modeled after the Great Stupa at Sanchi. Its design, however, is more contemporary and merges not only two traditional two-arched gateways into a pavilion-like structure, but also ancient Indian with Islamic art forms. Notice decorative motifs and intricate floral carvings on sandstone panels that illustrate Jataka tales--stories about previous lives of Buddha.
