Sand Sculpture Museum, Mysore

A relative travelling to Mysore wanted to know what she should definitely see and the first thing that came to my mind was the sand sculpture museum near Chamundi Hills.

It has been almost a year and a half since I visited this museum , but I still remember the incredible exhibits painstakingly and patiently sculpted by one artist  .  Am sharing a few pictures from the various themes the artist has worked on. Hope you like them !

The grandest of them all was the one depicting the Dussehra Procession that Mysore is famous for .

    Has this museum been newly built, I mean recent years, I had visited Mysore some 20 years back, no one had even remotely mentioned of it then. Seems amazing, definitely worth visiting, if I get a chance.

        Now this is embarrassing and shameful of me, being an Ahmedabadi and not knowing. Will visit it very soon, once kids are done with exams.
