Visit an Indian landscape at the British Museum

India Landscape features a selection of plants from the Indian subcontinent, displaying a range of colours and scents from South Asia.

The Indian subcontinent is a vast region with diverse populations, climatic zones and some of the world’s richest but endangered habitats.

The landscape changes from the dramatic, rocky environment of the Himalayan mountains to the tropical lushness of southern India, through a temperate zone representing the plains. Star plants link with objects in the British Museum’s collection and paintings in the exhibition Garden and Cosmos.

India Landscape is the result of a unique partnership between the British Museum and the Royal Botanic Gardens, Kew.
