Tour Itinerary:
Our guide will meet and pick you up from your hotel for this culture tour and day trip from Bangalore. We will head to Ramnagara, a small town located 50 KMs from Bangalore. Ramnagar is famous for its silk industry and receives 50 tons of silk cocoons every day making it Asia’s largest silk cocoon market. After breakfast, we visit the Government Silk Cocoon Market and witness an auction. We visit the famous toy town of Channapatna, home to the legendary makers of wooden toys. The skilled artisans of this town follow a unique process perfected by generations over time to make these eco friendly and child safe toys. They begin by procuring ivory wood, seasoning, cutting pruning, carving and finally applying vegetable dye for coloring. We visit a factory where guests can see these master craftsmen in action. Guests get to interact with the artisans and get a first hand experience of their trade and way of life. We visit a centre for promoting village folk art of the State of Karnataka. Guests get to see more than 5000 folk artifacts depicting folk literature, music, dance, festivals, sculpture and lifestyle in the different sections of this centre spread over 15 acres. Some of the incredible artifacts include 500 year old shadow puppets, Doddamane a replica of a large traditional village house, paintings from tribal homes,  a sculpture yard which has exhibits from AD 800 and live demonstration of craft like Pottery.
