  • Nice shop, felt slightly expensive, varieties of products. It's roadside at the signal so parking is a challenge, you may get fined for parking on the road as a police person stands nearby. Easy to locate and less crowded. Billing is a traditional process with multiple documents and carbon copies. Good place for kids toys too. You may find keychains, incense sticks, fragrance, soaps etc. Under the roof.
  • Beautiful and a variety of products from regular wood to sandalwood to brass. Hand crafted items, paintings, sculptures and what not. The place to go for buying unique traditional Indian gifts. Not well maintained and terribly slow. They need to upgrade their systems and processes as the entire ordering and the billing process takes forever! Staff seems seasoned and don't care much about selling or showcasing products. Some may help if you tell them what you need. It's right at the mg road brigade road junction may make parking a bit of a challenge but super easy to spot. Regardless, definitely worth checking out.
