Cultures have been evolving around nature since ages. It has been given a Godly status in almost every religion. Customs have been built around the natural world, devoting our existence to the environment. Worshipping 'Nature' is a form of showing gratitude for all it has given us. 'Sacred Groves' are the best example of this phenomenon. These are the sanctified areas, where the growth of the forest is crucial for maintaining the ecological balance.
The traveling exhibition 'Sacred Groves of India' tries to show the importance of man-environment relations from the various parts of the country. It depicts the numerous methods adopted by the various communities in conserving the rich bio-diverse forests of India. Prototypes of the sacred grove shrines of Kerala, Tamil Nadu and Tripura have been created, which gives visitor an authentic walk through of the place.
