What's Happening

Photographs of Kumartuli and Durga getting made have have been crowding our social media feeds for some weeks now, but the story of Durga from hay and clay to the pandals is another thing. You may get a better understanding of your Durga at this photography exhibition  at the Indian Museum by French philosopher and scholar Mireille Josephine Guezennec. A renowned Indology scholar, Mireille studied the sacred feminine power of Durga through her lens as she saw the goddess take shape in Kumartuli. The exhibition will be on display till November 12.

How's The Venue

One of the most-visited and largest museums in the country, the Indian Museum is also the ninth oldest in the world (it was founded back in 1814). The most popular attractions are definitely the Egyptian mummy and relics from the Indus Valley civilisation.
