We regularly travel to India. Out of all the wonderful sacred places there, Navadwip, Jaganath Puri and Vrindavan are our favourites. In 2002 we conceived of an idea to create a place here in Perth where visitors could experience the atmosphere of those unique places. Right from the start we wanted to take them to another world.

We started out with a few miniatures, but gradually as momentum, help and inspiration, The Sacred India Gallery materialized.

The themes of the gallery are cultural and artistic. Guests visit a series of interactive exhibition spaces which feature intriguing installations and hand-carved displays. The gallery also features an astonishing miniature exhibition by resident artist Jagattarini.

“A wonderful and uniquely talented team of artists, sculptors and designers from many parts of the world worked together to create this masterpiece. It was as if it had a life of its own. The gallery evolved spontaneously. As the inspiration was given, immediately the energy and required artists were there. So much hard work and dedication to detail! So much generosity of heart. It was like watching a dream come to life!”
