My first impression of Mumbai Airport was of pure awe. The attention to detail was clearly evident in the rounded peacock feather/tail shaped ceiling. The tall support beams which connected to the ceiling also resembled palm trees. The entirety of the airport, in many ways, clearly mixed in the rich cultural history of India along with the new, contemporary India. The open concept of the airport gave it a modern feel, but also gave enough space to display the cultural identities that India possesses. The artwork and artifacts along the walls gives travelers lessons in history and a glimpse of the artistic contributions from different parts of India.
