Legacy: Australia to return historic Indian artefacts

New Delhi, Nov 27 (UNI) The Australian Government will return three culturally significant artefacts during Prime Minister Scott Morrison’s visit to India in January next year.
The relics are: A pair of door guardians (dvarapala) 15th century, Tamil Nadu, - (two works); and the serpent king (Nagaraja) 6th to 8th century, Rajasthan or Madhya Pradesh.
Canberra said the return of these relics underscores the world’s debt to the magnificent culture, history and legacy of India.
According to a statement on Wednesday from its High Commission here, the artefacts, which were held by the National Gallery of Australia, were purchased in good faith. But extensive research undertaken by the Gallery has led to its decision to voluntarily return them to India.
''Like India, we understand the value of our ancient cultures and artefacts,'' Prime Minister Morrison said.
''The return of these artefacts is the right thing to do. This is another demonstration of deep relationship between Australia and India.''
