The one-of-its-kind ‘Culture Corridor’ project was unveiled on Saturday, coinciding with the opening of the G20 summit.
The ‘Culture Corridor’ has been set up at the venue for the G20 guests, which will showcase a unique international project called ‘Culture Corridor: G20 Digital Museum’.
It represents and celebrates the shared heritage of G20 members and invitee countries.
It also incorporates the iconic and notable cultural objects and the heritage of the G20 members and nine invitee countries.
Here are some of the artefacts from different countries displayed at the Culture Corridor in the Bharat Mandapam:
