Kala Sangam, a collaboration between the Indian Heritage Centre and the High Commission of India in Singapore, promotes the root culture of Singapore's Indian community by showcasing various Indian crafting traditions.

Thanjavur painting is a classical South Indian art, characterised by rich, flat and vivid colors, simple iconic composition, glittering gold foils overlaid on delicate but extensive gesso work and inlay of glass beads and precious gems. Observe a live demonstration by a traditional craftsman at Indian Heritage Centre's Level 1.
