A huge idol of Duyodhana was there on the open ground of IGNCA. Since, I reached there one day late, so all the decorative paints, embellishments were gone from the idol. I searched the net and found the decorated picture of the same. See the link and you will how HUGE it was!!
The exhibition began with an introduction on Mahabharata.
One whole section showed the various military strategies used by the two teams in the war of Mahabharata - Kauravas and Pandavas. As we know, they would arrange their armies in certain patterns to counter their enemies. Depending on the shape that arrangement took, they were named like the one above is called "Vajra Vyuha". Understandably, the above Vyuha was designed by Pandavas.
I have missed out on the name of this Vyuha, but it is of Kauravas
The look from inside.
Handicraft work depicting a horse rider or is that a camel?!
