  • Nice after visit to Chamundi Hill. Bus stop 100 m at the bottom of the mountain. Also fun to post pictures with special backgrounds. Everything not expensive.

  • If you have never been to a sand museum, it's definitely worth a visit. For a cheap price, you get to look at some amazing art! Kudos to the artist. The place is a little congested though.  more »
  • The sand sculptures are really good. The place is small and trip will be finished in 30 minutes. India's first sand sculpture museum  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.
  • Very creative and well thought. Nice place for both kids and adults. Worth mentioning the sculptures of Disney and mermaids
  • 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....
