  • 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.
  • Awesome collections made by the sand Artist and must visit place when you are travelling to Mysuru. Tourists can see how the art is coming out of sand as well as the emotions are coming out. Specially the Ganesha 🙏🙏 👌👌👌
  • 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....
  • Made and run by a local girl. Great artist and her brilliant art work. Cheap entry 40 bucks. Doesn't take long to go about it and totally worth the time and money. Sand sculptures of many characters and worlds.
  • Small but a clean and well maintained place! It really pays for the money you spend and is totally worth it! Great Sculpting Expertise at display!
