In India, rivers are given a divine status. The two rivers, Ganga and Yamuna, have been worshipped since ancient times. Ganga, the chief of the sacred streams of India, whose waters are said to have the power of cleansing from all past, present and future sins, is believed to be divine.

The Gangadhara legend traces the origin of the river Ganges to Heaven. Ganga had to be persuaded to descend to the earth to enable the ancestors of king Bhagiratha to ascend to heaven.

Dyed in the technique of batik is Ganga in her iconic form. She is seated on a lotus placed on the body of the alligator. Ganga is always associated with the alligator and Yamuna with a tortoise which is the most relevant difference between the two river goddesses. She is wearing a gem encrusted crown but the rest of the jewellery is subtle. Wearing a green saree and a gentle expression on her face, she is holding a water pot in one hand and a lotus flower in the other.

The artist has cleverly used blue for the background to represent the ocean. Liberally used green represents fertility and abundance.

Hello, Just a short feedback on your new website layout: the old one was better than most of what you come across on the www, but you've managed to make it even better. I very much like the new look of the book pages and 'my gallery' pages. Thanks again for offering me a look inside the books. It's a big help for finding out if it's really what I want. Everything is perfect: the presentation of the items, your way of handling the orders, and the fast and always diligently packed parcels. Thanks to all at Exotic India, Walter

Exotic India is a fine organization to do business with. I have had the best trading experience and the very best customer service. The communication I have had with Vipin K. is of the highest quality; my questions and requests were quickly and professionally answered and fulfilled. A special thanks to the artist Kailash Raj for the beautiful art he produces; I have certainly been enriched by the way his art exemplifies the stories they tell. Many Thanks to all concerned.

An excellent website, as always. I do not even mention its content, which is beautiful beyond words, but I am merely referring to the great functionality and optimal design of your website. Links always work, the information is accurate and complete, images are very clear, including scanned content of your books. A pleasure to purchase from you.
Oreste, USA
I just wanted to extend my profound thanks to you for expediting my order. It was so well packaged and all import processes taken care of so the beautiful statue arrived in fabulous condition. It looks truly wonderful and I am so happy to have Lord Ganesh take pride of place in my home. Thank you again for your superb service. Best regards
