Located near Chamundi betta (hill), the one-of-its-kind sand sculpture museum in the country, it exhibits the rich cultural heritage of Mysuru city. Made from sand and water, over 150 of the art monoliths at the museum were made with around 115 truckloads of sand, water and a little glue. They feature 16 themes. The more interesting ones include a giant Ganesha, Tom and Jerry and Goddess Chamundeshwari, as well as the erstwhile king of Mysore Srikantadatta Narasimharaja Wadiyar decked on the occasion of Dasara. You can also find monoliths representing Lord Krishna and Arjuna, a laughing Buddha, a christmas tree and Santa Claus, characters from Disneyland, ancient Egypt, the zodiac wheel, scenes from Arabian nights etc. The museum was conceptualised by prominent sand sculptor, MN Gowri, who took four months to create it.
