  • 2012 - Kutch Sanskrutik Museum

    The culture can be explained in terms of a process that gradually shapes the life of the man, in the lan- he lives ! This includes his social inheritance; the artifacts and skills he develops; the habits he forms and the thoughts and values he imbibes.

    To know and comprehend the unique cultural heritage of a small territory of Kutch located at the north-west part of India, a special attempt is made by preparing a small museum in a hall at our Vishram-gruh Shahibaug.

    The human habitation on this land is of very early times. The fossils found here, near the river-beds, mountain high ranges and along the Sea Shore; so also the archival ruins of the times are the evidence, supporting this view.

    The sculptures and the architecture of the medieval period, the Shiva, the Sun and the Jain temples reveal the prosperity of this land, in the past.

    It is difficult to define the culture of Kutch in a few words. Kutch has its own identity. The man on this land has had to struggle all along, for his survival due to the hostile nature of the environment. The man here had to move from one village to the other village or province, or state and even beyond the boundaries of the country, in search of livelihood. There are more Kutchis who have settled outside Kutch than within. But those who have migrated from Kutch have maintained their identity as Kutchis all over.
