SummaryThe South Asian collection comprises works from what is today India, Pakistan, Bangladesh, Sri Lanka, Nepal, and Tibet. The collection began in the late 1960s, with the initial core of the Himalayan collection coming in 1968. When the 2010 wing was completed, a 27-ton marble late-Mughal garden pavilion from Rajasthan was installed inside the galleries.
