Mysore Sand Sculpture Museum is India’s first sand sculpture museum and is located in Mysore, close to the Chamundi Hills.
The museum is spread over an area of about 13,500 square feet and was created by M N Gowri, who has a Bachelor in Fine Arts and who wanted to show something unique to the tourists. You will be taken to another world where these magnificent pieces of art have been made with the use of only sand of water.
There are over 150 sculptures that are exhibited here. It is amazing how a temporary sand sculpture you make on beaches is made permanently to stay here at this museum. The most prominent themes visible are the heritage of Mysore, scenes from epic mythological stories, wildlife, and religions around the globe. A giant sculpture of Lord Ganesha welcomes you right at the entrance of the museum.
With an entry fee of just Rs. 40, this is a fine recommendation while you’re touring Mysore. It is most convenient to take a taxi from your accommodation at Mysore. You could also use the bus. The nearest railway station is the Mysore Railway Station, 5.6 km away.
