Bastar Gate

A unique "Bastar Gate" is just installed in Gate 4 of Eco Park. The motif and craftsmanship is done by tribals of Bastar: I'd seen a sample at Raipur Urja Park. The tribals use locally available iron ore (called "Ghana") to extract the material used to make the gate. The figures and models are developed and designed by the tribals only. I photo I took yesterday:
