About
In this day trip from Kolkata, you will discover the medieval terracotta temples of the 17th century Malla Kingdom. Next in line is a magical experience of Baluchari silk saree weaving at Bishnupur. We will meet the legendary silk weavers who will demonstrate the intricate art of weaving silk sarees with the ‘Ramayana’ scenes woven all over the saree border. Last on the agenda is a rendezvous with the last remaining  Terracotta Potters of Panchmura to learn the history of the craft and stories of the associated rituals.

This was a long day but an amazing one. Abhishek took us first to Bishnupuir where the temples made of terracotta were outstanding. We then also saw a weavers village where people were making silk sarees using hand looms. This was the highlight of the day. We also saw some beautiful pottery being done. Abhishek was very knowledgeable and friendly. We had a fantastic day. Highly recommended.

The tour to Bishnupur with Abhishek was really wonderful!
It was a very long drive due to traffic but interesting scenes of everyday life along way. Abhishek was very well informed about the history, architecture and iconography of the temple. We also visited the homes of 2 handloom

Five senses tours had organised a fantastic Raj walk for us earlier and so I decided to take their day trip to Bishnupur. What an incredible day. Abhijeet first took us to temples built on terracotta. Very beautiful and remarkable. Then we saw how weaving of silk Sarees happen. It was again a mesmerizing experience to see beautiful Saree being woven from just simple looms. Finally we also met some potters and it was a great time spent with their families. Very highly recommended.

The tour was great, our guide was very knowledgable, the different location visited were each unique in their own way, altought i was expecting a bite more from the pottery, like a live crafting showcase or something like that.
I would definitely recommend this tour, but bare in mind it's quite a long journey up there.
