Guirni Necklace: A Shining Heritage of Mauritius

The Guirni Necklace is a traditional jewellery associated with Indian Indentured labourers. The indentured labourers converted their savings into gold sovereigns known as guirnis or silver sovereigns called haïkaals .
Today, many Indo- Mauritians still cherish this inherited traditional culture of wearing guirnis. The Guirnis are also still used for different rituals related to birth, marriage and funeral ceremonies.
In our modern society, guirnis represent one of the most valuable tangible heritage of Mauritius. In the context of the International Museum Day (2017), the MGI Folk Museum of Indian Immigration, has felt it pertinent to come forward with a multimedia application, to disseminate the history and role of this traditional Indian Necklace, in our cultural landscape.

Guirni Multimedia Application
