About
A day tour is through the areas of Ramanagara and Channapatna, two towns near Bangalore famous for their cottage industries. The Culture tour aims to take a visitor on a Silk route - from the humble silkworms, their cocoons to the markets & factories - in an effort to show the process and the diverse people behind the silk industry of South India. Do you know India produces 20% of the world’s silk? (Of course, no guesses on who is the world’s largest producer of silk). We journey onwards to Channapatna, learn about the communities that live here and their famous handicrafts livelihood. We will visit the toys’ factories and the shops as we learn about how these colourful wooden toys are created, its journey across the changing times and the modern interpretations. Apart from the industries, We will visit a quaint and a beautiful Sufi Dargah, a centuries old temple and return to Bangalore by evening.
