Under the aegis of Bonjour India, H.E. Mr. Alexandre Ziegler, Ambassador of France to India proudly presented the exhibition titled “Space-Time and Place: the Culture of Indian Maps” hosted by the Krishnakriti Foundation in Hyderabad.

Space-Time and Place explore perceptions of space – human interactions, behaviour and discovery – across the Indian subcontinent from 15th- to early-20th centuries. It juxtaposes traditional Indian notions of space-time and cosmology with the almost contemporaneous emergence of western mapping.
