Places of Worship Series

This is the first ever festival organized to encompass at least 6 religions of India, that will take place at various places of worship around Delhi reflecting the religious and cultural diversity of the city. We have tried to use historic places which have a meaning in the minds of the people. Due to security reasons 'Jewish Sacred Music' has been shifted from Judah Hyam Synagogue to The Attic.

Organised by The Attic. Supported by Delhi Administration and Sangeet Natak Akademi
