Prime Minister Narendra Modi along with his Malaysian counterpart Najib Razak today jointly inaugurated the over USD 1.1 million ‘Torana Gate’ built by India. Mr. Modi said, it was not merely a piece of art on stone but connecting of two nations. Mr. Modi, who held talks with Mr. Najib earlier in the day, inaugurated the gate at the Little India enclave in Brickfields in Kuala Lumpur.

The gateway, which is a gift from India to mark the launch of Kuala Lumpur’s Litte India project, is an exact replica of the Sanchi gate built by Emperor Ashok. Dedicating it to the people of Malaysia, Mr Modi hailed the universal brotherhood and equality propagated by Buddhism. He thanked Malaysian Prime Minister Najib Razak for his farsightedness and love shown to India, and hoped that India-Malaysian relations would become ”better, deeper, and stronger” under Mr Razak.

Mr.Najib said the gateway is symbolic and substantive, adding that it is a clear signal of closer cooperation and people to people interaction. The intricately carved Torana Gate, inspired by the Toranas of the great Buddhist sculpture of Sanchi, has carvings and relief work representing ancient Indian art as well as the Islamic art form.

Kshitij Jain, the chief designer and architect of the Torana, said, “Toranas, built by the great Mauryan dynasty ruler, Ashoka, in first century BC, essentially depict symbols related to Buddhism.
