Inside the pavilion, a cubicle has been set aside to attract young children. The walls have impeccable frames featuring colorful sketches of places and characters from Chinese fairy tales. Below each frame is the gist of the story translated into English for Indian children.

Many visitors are attracted to a photo exhibition based on the theme of China-India cultural contacts. The exhibition brings alive the special moments captured in photographs and reflects the cultural contact between China and India in different historical periods over the past 2,000 years.

At the tea exhibition stall, the organizers have brought six kinds of tea for the Indian visitors. Some artists dressed in traditional costumes perform a dance featuring the making of tea. Visitors can have a taste of Chinese tea and take small tea packets home as gifts.

The fair will continue until Jan 17.
