Kolkata : Bishnupur Tour

Bishnupur tour highlight is a magical experience of Baluchari silk saree weaving. We will meet the legendary silk weavers who will demonstrate the intricate art of weaving silk sarees. You will also discover the medieval terracotta temples of the 17th century. This Bishnupur tour also includes a rendezvous with the last remaining  Terracotta Potters of Panchmura as well.

Tour Itinerary

  • 6:30 AM Departure from Kolkata
  • 10 AM- Bishnupur tour
  • We step back to the 17th century and enter the world of the Malla Kingdom and its Terracotta temples. We visit a slew of temples dedicated to Lord Krishna, the patron god of the Malla Kingdom. Our guide will tell you the story of how a tyrannical Malla King converted to Gaudiya Vaishnavism and how that provided the impetus for terracotta art to flourish in the 16th and 17th-century in Bishnupur. Among other temples, we will also visit Rasmancha,  the first temple constructed by the King Bir Hambir. It is a quaint pyramidal structure marked by huge, stepped masonry and a composite Chala type roof,  designed as a stage. We next head to visit weavers of the famous Baluchuri style silk sari. We will get to experience how the Saris are created on draw looms. It will be fascinating to see the intricate art of weaving ‘Ramayana’ scenes woven all over the saree border.
  • 4: 15 PM- Arrive in Panchmura
  • Next experience in this Bishnupur tour is a visit to the village of the famed potters of Panchmura. They are a fast dwindling tribe of master craftsmen of terracotta pottery. It will be fascinating to witness the transformation of a lump of clay baked in sun and burnt in mud kilns with dry eucalyptus leaves to magnificent looking figurines. Only 70 families continue to ply this trade. We will meet and interact with a few of these master terracotta potters.830PM- Bishnupur tour ends after we drop you back in Kolkata
