Mysore Sand Museum half-day tour.
Chamundi Hills and Sand Museum can be visited on a 4-hour tour by cabs.
Situated in Mysore’s KC layout, the sand museum is included in the beautiful and tranquil tourist spots list. As soon as we think of sand, our mind encourages us to play in sand. Even today when we visit the sea, we don’t forget to play in the sand. We used to build hills made of sand. We dug a deep hole and after a while buried our arms and legs in it. But we never thought of making an artwork out of the sand. But M N Gowri did not do that. A postgraduate in fine arts, she was waiting for an opportunity to identify herself in new matters of Mysore.
Once during a function organized by JSS, she created sculptures out of sand. There she was praised a lot. Inspired by this, she did not sit idly. She thought of establishing a sand museum. And she started looking for the right place for it. She felt the road to Chamundi hills is apt for it. 120 truckloads of sand were brought, and opened a museum for tourists in an area of 1350 feet which consists of 150 sand arts with an entry fee of Rs.40/-.
