    Nice place to visit with family and friends. Children will enjoy watching the cartoon characters and take pictures inside the 3D gallery.  more »

    It's a nice little place to visit. The way the artist used the sand to design various themes was quite amazing. Not overcrowded which I was pleased by. You won't spend alot of time there maybe 20 mins...  more »

    We visited the Chamundi Temple and decided to stop at the foothills for this museum. A worthy stop. Amazing sand sculptures and great concepts. Worth a visit in Mysore.  more »

    Liked the place. Must go in and take a peek. The sculptures are made beautifully. I very much doubt that it is only sand that they are made up of, but who cares when you see something beautiful.

    You can see all genres and categories of sand art. Care is taken to protect the art. The top is covered with sheets. Fence is in front to avoid touching the art sculpture. Other than sand art you have games and stalls.

    Tremendous,marvellous,awesome, a word isn't sufficient to explain the effort behind this art extravaganza. It's a small place with a huge sand mountain with the sculptures all over it every inch by inch. It's being run by a local girl, only those who can love such art and value someone effort are welcome here those who experience and believe exhibitions can only be happen I'm AC hall please avoid visiting this place....
