“As an architecture enthusiast, it is heartwarming for me to see how the similarity and closeness between the people of Israel and India are also reflected in the architectural heritage of Tel Aviv and Mumbai. I am sure that the visitors of the exhibition will second that observation while enjoying this enriching cultural experience,” Kobbi Shoshani, the Consul General of Israel in Mumbai, said.

The exhibition is on till June 22, between 11 am to 6 pm at Claude Batley Gallery at Sir JJ College of Architecture.
