We had finally arrived in Mumbai after approximately 33 hours of travelling from Cape Town. We still had one more flight to Kochi before catching (or rather missing) a train to Alleppey. We only had three hours between our flights and to collect our luggage, pass immigration and check-in for the connecting flight – we didn’t have much time to explore this airport, but you can’t help notice the amazing art pieces even in a state of over 30 hours of irregular sleep.
Mumbai International Airport’s new terminal opened in 2014 and is considered India’s largest public art gallery. The art pieces were collected and restored by award-winning curator Rajeev Sethi. He travelled the country for a period of three years to gather the objects for a display that runs for 3km through the airport on an 18-meter-high wall.
