MUMBAI: The renovated Kurla Villagers Cross was inaugurated today in the presence of around 250 east indian villagers. The inauguration was followed by prayers in the presence of an East indian brass Band and carol singing.

The cross was renovated by well-known Educationist, Moses Gomes. The kurla Village consists of four gaothans - old kurla, hall village, culbavor and naupada. The Villagers Cross(photo enclosed) is prominently located at the entrance of two gaothans - old kurla and hall village. The Cross stands atop a concrete platform at an height of around 8 feet. The cross was well decorated and opened in time for Christmas.

The Crosses have a special relevance and are a regular sight at all East indian gaothans, the east Indians are the original inhabitants of Bombay. The crosses were built around the 1900's to protect the villagers from plague. The presence of the Crosses at entrances and bylanes along the gaothans were believed to have saved the villagers from plague.
