It was built in 1966 and is nine kilometers from the city. The village houses an art gallery, museum and an amphitheater for theater performances. This is a residential village for the artists, so a polite reserve is appreciated. « less

This place has good connection of modern Indian arts. Entry ticket is negligible. The artists live in the same colony. If you are interested you can go buy their arts.

Everything about the place from the art to artists to the seashore nearby was becalming and soothing. A definite stopover en route to Mahabs. Some of the sculptures were out of the world....

If you are an artist or understand art in its many forms this is one place to visit.I visited the place because one of my lecturers lived in the vicinity just to kill a couple of hours. But I ended up spending the entire afternoon and evening there. Its a great place and parking wasn't a problem.

This trip was avoidable.... Not much there to look. Dakshin Chiteq, a bit more commercial was much better.
