Torana
Gate

The Torana gateway, which is a gift from India to mark the launch of Kuala Lumpur's Litte India project, has been built at an estimated cost of about 5 million Malaysian Ringgit (USD 1.1 million). The intricately carved Torana Gate, inspired by the Toranas of the great Buddhist sculpture of Sanchi, has carvings and relief work representing ancient Indian art as well as the Islamic art form. There is the Bodhi Tree, the lotus flowers, the jatakas tales and many other such illustrations. Such detailing on an art form of this scale, involving the two disparate cultures, has not been done before.
