India's pavilion was a reproduction of the tomb of Prince Etmad-Dowlah at Agra, India. It occupied a site near the Philippine reservation, at the rear of the Forestry, Fish and Game Palace. The building cost 20,500 dollars.
Inside, the pavilion were samples of tea, coffee and pepper. The interior furnishings were typical of East Indian life; many historic relics were on display.
Indian plant life was demonstrated in the gardens surrounding the tomb, specimens which have been brought from the old-time burial places of India's royalty.
Servers from India dispensed samples of tea in white robe-like garb.
Rising from the center of the court was a Jain temple of teakwood... being a copy of a white marble temple eight times as large at Palitana, Central India. The reproduction represented two years' work of sixty-five artists and was made expressly for the Louisiana Purchase Exposition.”
After the exposition, the temple was dismantled, but was not shipped back to India as originally planned.
